A fun, full-color look at everyone's favorite cheese dip, with history, tips, facts, and 50 recipes from beloved food blogger Lisa Fain, "the Homesick Texan."
Queso (aka chile con queso) is a spicy, cheesy, comforting cult favorite that has long been a delicious addition to any party, barbecue, or family gathering. This appealing and accessible book features a mix of down-home standards and contemporary updates, from historical, regional, and Mexican quesos to vegan and dessert quesos, including Chile Verde Con Queso, Squash Blossom Queso Fundido, Fajita Queso, Cactus and Corn Queso Poblano, Frito Salad with Queso Dressing, Pulled Pork Queso Blanco, and Sausage Queso Biscuits. Whether you're relaxing with friends, having a few people over to watch the football game, or entertaining a hungry crowd, queso is the perfect party food for good times.
Who doesn't like cheese? I'm certainly a fan, and queso, with all its gooey goodness, is one dish you can't really go wrong with. But I also couldn't help but wonder...how many ways can you mix cheese and chilies? Do you really need an entire cookbook on the subject? Probably not. All of these recipes look delicious (and the one we tried certainly tasted so) While the recipes aren't mind blowing, they are fun. And I'm up for any book that gives me more ways to eat cheese.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
