#FoodHolidaysWeLove: It's National Cheese Fondue Day on April 11! Though fondue (a blend of cheeses and spices into a thick dipping sauce) originated in Switzerland, it has a long history in Latin America under a name you know and love: queso fundido.
Queso fundido, most commonly found in Mexico, is a gooey, indulgent dish of melted cheese usually served with tortilla wedges (or used to top hot dogs!). It's spicy, meaty, and delicious. We can't wait to celebrate with some of our favorite recipes!
If you're looking for a vegetarian queso fundido, this is your dish. The queso is spicy (thanks to chiles) with a slight smokiness and heft, thanks to tender sauteed mushrooms. Finish it off with scallions for a touch of freshness and you're ready to feed a crowd. They're welcome.
Good weather means one thing - it’s grilling time! Every family enjoys getting out of the dining room, and setting up the picnic table in the yard. Try a little creativity with your standard hot dog and hamburger fare by making this delicious queso fundido. Mexican style chorizo and minced hot peppers gives this topper a sizzling snap, and can be served as a dip for corn chips or fresh vegetables. Though we prefer it over hot dogs.
This is a classic queso recipe - meaning you can have an indulgent treat ready in 10 minutes flat. The base of this queso is your favorite jarred salsa, stirred together with fresh crema, spicy chiles, and your favorite cheese then topped with fresh cilantro. Enjoy with toritllas. Or a spoon.
