How To Make Queso Fresco Dip

You only need 6 ingredients to make this recipe! 

  • Queso Fresco – This is a type of soft fresh Mexican cheese typically made from cow’s milk.
  • Mexican Sour Cream – Also, called Mexican crema, you can find it in almost any grocery store. You can also use regular sour cream if you prefer.
  • Lime – Use a fresh lime for the most flavor. Store-bought concentrated lime is sometimes bitter.
  • Salt – Used to season the dip.
  • Black Pepper – Adds just a bit of peppery flavor. You can use cayenne pepper or ground chipotle pepper if you want to make the dip spicy.
  • Garlic Powder – Just a touch of garlic brings the dip together. Fresh minced garlic is another option.

To start, cut the queso fresco into large chunks. Then put the cheese into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse it a few times until it’s crumbly. If you are using an immersion blender you will need to chop the cheese up into crumbles and then move on to the next step.

Add the sour cream and the juice of one lime to the crumbled cheese in the food processor. Now, add the salt, black pepper, and garlic powder too.

Next, put the lid on the food processor and blend then everything together until the dip is smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times with a rubber spatula.

When the queso fresco dip is ready, pour it into a bowl and then serve it with tortilla chips, bread, or veggies for dipping!
