Queso Blanco is a fresh Mexican cheese made from skim cow’s milk cheese. Lemon juice used to be used coagulate it, giving it a lemon tang. Commercially though, Rennet is now used, so the fresh tang is mostly missing.
The cheese is white, creamy, and crumbly.
Queso Blanco gets creamy and soft when heated, but doesn’t melt or lose its shape. This makes it good to use inside stuffed foods, as it won’t melt out of them during cooking.
The name just means “white cheese” in Spanish.
