  • Blending Ingredients – We blended the ingredients in a blender, but you can use a food processor as well. A immersion blender gives the queso a smooth and creamy texture.

  • Cottage Cheese – We used full fat cottage cheese but feel free to use low-fat cottage cheese. It may change the taste, but it will still be delicious.
  • Shredded Cheese – We added shredded cheese in this recipe. Make sure to shred the cheese yourself. Pre-shredded cheese has additional ingredients that are not necessary for this recipe.
