I can't successfully communicate with my local Mi Casita restaurant in regards to their white cheese queso.

I have searched and searched for information on this and come up empty. I want to know if anyone can either find out or if anyone just knows if it's safe or not. I'm 16 weeks prego and craving some beans and rice SO bad...and I have chips here at work with me, but want some queso badly...like REALLY BAD.

Can anyone help me out? Much appreciated :)

I don't know about your specific restaurant, but no queso recipe I've ever seen has any sort of thickener, other than cheese.

Only time I've been duped by queso at an Austin Grill years ago, their queso turned out to contain beer. But I understand this is quite uncommon! My boyfriend is from Texas and thought it was bizarre, for whatever that's worth. And the beer-laden queso was a dark yellow, not the white cheese kind. I indulge in Tex-Mex pretty often myself and have yet to see this duplicated anywhere else.

I have run across Queso sauces that have a flour/water base to thicken them so I wouldn't eat it if you can't get a clear answer.

Did you try using the contact form on their main website to ask?

Yuck! What a waste of cheese. It's like the people that make cheese sauce by starting with a roux. Just add more cheese if you want it thicker. :D

Can you buy some at the grocery store instead so you can be sure of the ingredients and prep? Even if the Queso is free of gluten ingredients it could be cc'd in the restaurant. Especially a restuarant that does not have a gluten-free menu or training in preventing cc. I have not been able to safely eat at any Mexican places because it seems like they put flour in everything to stretch it.
