Herbed Queso Fresco
Rating: Unrated
Mexican cheese expert Carlos Yescas loves this easy, customizable queso fresco as a garnish or for breakfast. Fresh herbs or chiles make this a show-stopping appetizer or impressive taco filling. Using the highest-quality milk you can find, preferably a grass-fed milk from a local dairy, will ensure a clean flavor. Pick up a basket mold, which allows the cheese to drain evenly, and liquid rennet, a natural coagulant which creates tender, sliceable cheese.
