8 posts in this topic

I'm on the hunt for a really good mexican cheese that is great for cheese dip and or melted over refried beans. Any suggestions? I've tried a few with not so good results? It could be that I'm not doing it right. I want the white mexican cheese Help! : )

We cook a lot of Mexican food here, so I will keep you in mind, and if I can find one, will let you know asap, as I am currently researching Mexican food for Celiacs.

Have you tried some of the fresh, soft cheeses? They melt better IMO. What about adding Mexican cream?

Do you have a grocery store that stocks Mexican cheeses? I don't mean Kraft Monterey Jack....

I use Kraft Monterray Jack all the time. Melts beautifully, tastes good, and I know it's safe. I just thought I'd mention that because I just happened to be eating some as I read this post! :D

Ha!

The Mexican cheese brand I see most around here is Cacique. It may be your recipe not the cheese. You'd be surprised at how complicated a simple cheese sauce can be -one that doesn't clump or seize.

Anyway, there are many fresh Mexican cheeses. Some are salty, sweet, etc. some crumble well like a blue or feta.

Kraft is safe they dust the grated cheese with potato flour, some companies do not. Unfortunately we have became a label reading society. So long as I healthy and happy, I keep reading labels.
