Queso fresco is a favorite in Mexican cooking for everything from tacos and enchiladas to huevos rancheros. Its fresh, mild, salty flavor and crumbly texture also make it a delicious addition to salads, grilled or roasted seasonal vegetables and egg dishes. With our simple-to-use kit, you can make your own all-natural quesco fresco that will put its store-bought counterparts to shame. You supply fresh milk and a few basic kitchen utensils—our kit contains everything else you need to make fresh cheese in less than an hour.
