Queso blanco is a popular Mexican cheese that means "white cheese." This fresh and crumbly cheese is slightly salty and will brown when heated but will not melt. Similar cheeses from this family, such as panela, are made throughout Mexico, South America and the Caribbean. Wisconsin cheesemakers make queso blanco with the same stringent quality standards of all Wisconsin cheeses.
Firm, crumbly. Holds shape when heated; does not melt.
Mild, fresh, low acid
Crumble queso blanco in tortilla soup, sprinkle over your favorite Mexican-style dish or use in enchiladas and chili rellenos.
Performance Notes - These fresh, mild, white cheeses resist melting and brown easily. Fried queso blanco cubes make great salad croutons. Shredded queso blanco maintains its texture and adds firm body to cheese stuffings.
Queso blanco is a good sampling cheese. Fry cubes or sticks in a preheated nonstick skillet until golden brown; sample with toothpicks or pretzel sticks.
