Queso Fresco (Mexican Cheese)

This is so easy, it is ridiculous. Not only that, it is good too.

  • 4 cups whole milk (not skim, 1 or 2%)
  • 2 tbsp. Greek yogurt
  • juice of 2 limes
  • cheesecloth

Bring milk and yogurt to 180 F over medium heat. Remove from heat and mix in the lime juice. Cover with a damp clolth and let sit 15 minutes.

Strain through the cheesecloth for 25-35 minutes, depending on soft you want the cheese to be. Refrigerate.


I told you it was simple.
