Queso Fresco

Fresh Cheese (-Latin American-) (Mexican) (Peruvian)


Queso fresco means "fresh cheese" and it is a Mexican cheese of the queso blanco (white cheese) type, made from cow's milk alone or from a combination of cow and goat milk, and acidified with rennet, lemon juice, or vinegar. The acid serves two purposes: It causes the milk to form curds and gives queso fresco its tangy flavor.
