Can you name these Mexican cheeses*?

Do you know the difference between queso blanco and queso fresco? Queso de papa and queso quesadilla?

Learn the cheeses of Mexico, also known as Hispanic or Latin cheeses. Take a tour of fresh Hispanic cheeses, Hispanic melting cheeses and aged Hispanic cheeses.

You may be inspired to use one or two for dinner in a Mexican recipe.

  • Check out the Mexican cheeses, including tips on cooking with Mexican cheeses.
  • Make a black bean burrito. This recipe uses Cheddar, so you don’t have to scramble to find queso Chihuahua (Jack cheese is another substitute).
  • How about tortilla soup: Mexican chicken soup garnished with tortilla chips?
  • *Cheeses in photo from top: Roth Käse GranQueso, Queso Blanco and Queso Quesadilla from El Viajero, Roth Käse Cotija and El Viajero Cotija.
