Queso Blanco Recipe



Normally I try not to eat while I use the computer. I try not to eat while I work because

1. Lawd knows I’ll get it everywhere, I basically eat like a 2 year old child


2. I’ll eat 10x more because I’m distracted 😉


However, I’m making a major exception for this Queso Blanco Recipe! I simply cannot type up this post without munching on some!


I LOVE getting queso blanco from my favorite Mexican restaurants. I could literally eat it as a meal, but apparently that’s frowned upon! 😉 This tastes even better than what you get a restaurants!


This homemade queso blanco  is dangerous! You can make this queso blanco recipe in less than minutes! Late night munchers UNITE!

This queso blanco recipe goes great as an appetizer with tortilla chips. However, it’s also great on all your mexican favorites like burritos and quesadillas.
