Recipes Appetizers and Snacks Dips and Spreads Recipes Cheese Dips and Spreads Recipes Ridiculously Easy Queso Fresco "Dip" 3.7 (3) 3 Reviews 1 Photo On a recent trip to the local Costco, I ended up purchasing a huge thing of queso fresco, or Mexican white cheese. Not sure what to do with it, I created this modified dip that goes perfectly with any Mexican-themed meal. It's so ridiculously easy and looks much more refined than classic chile con queso. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy! Reheat as needed. Recipe by Jillian Eileen Updated on June 28, 2022 Save Saved!
