Queso Fresco - It's 'Fresh Mexican' Cheese

Oh Queso!  Where have you been all my life?!  I love you!!!!!

Yes, it's a strange declaration but have you had it?  Queso Fesco translates from Spanish to fresh cheese.  This mild and milky flavor will just melt in your mouth.  Though the flavor is somewhat similar to mozzarella, the texture is entirely different.  It is grainy and will crumble.  Great for garnishing and on top of dishes.  I personally love it with everything! It adds a satisfying, salty flavor as a topping for eggs, tacos, salads and soups and can be stuffed into peppers or other vegetables.  Thank you Mexico!
