Cow's Milk

This fresh cheese, also called Queso Blanco, can be thought of as a Mexican feta: crumbly, slightly salty, mild & holds its shape when heated.  Its qualities stem from the simple process by which it’s made:  fresh whole milk is heated then an acid, like vinegar, is added to stimulate coagulation (instead of a rennet or culture like most cheese).   Queso Fresco perfectly tops quesadillas, rice, beans or nachos.
