Tips To Perfect Queso
How To Keep Queso From Separating
Queso can separate, so here are our tips to keep your queso velvety smooth if you have any problems with your queso breaking.
- Make a roux with flour or a cornstarch slurry and stir in to queso – starch helps to keep fat from separating.
- Stir in an emulsifier – mustard powder helps.
Shred The Cheese
We always recommend chopping, shredding, or even tearing cheese apart to make more surface area so cheese can melt quickly and more evenly.
What Cheese To Use For Queso
There are some cheeses that work beautifully in queso – cheese that has the right fat and moisture content to melt, without seizing up or getting too oily.
- White cheddar
- Cheddar cheese
We love crumbling a little cotija cheese (preferably very cold, gives a great temperature twist when eating) on top of queso – but since it doesn’t melt well, we use it more as a topping than the creamy cheese base.
