About Queso Chihuahua

Queso Chihuahua is a traditional Mexican cheese that originates from the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It is called "Queso Menonita" after the Mennonite communities of Northern Mexico that first produced it in the 1920s. Mennonite colonies still continue to make and sell the cheese throughout the state and country. This cheese is now also produced in the United States, making it easier for more people to have access to such a versatile cheese. It is traditionally made with raw cow's milk. However, these days this cheese is alternatively made from pasteurized cow's milk which helps extend its shelf life. 

Queso Chihuahua can be described as a semi-soft cheese that is pale yellow in color. Its flavor varies from very mild, similar to mozzarella or a Monterey Jack, to tasting like a medium cheddar, depending on how long it has aged. This cheese is best known for its use as a melting cheese as it holds up well to high cooking temperatures. 

This cheese can be used in a variety of dishes:  
  • Mexican Queso Dip: Queso Chihuahua is perfect for creating an authentic Mexican queso dip. This cheese is at its finest when used to make a dipping sauce, as it melts exceptionally well, so it can be used to create a smooth and flavorful dip that would be perfect served with homemade tortilla chips. 
  • QuesoFundido: This delicious appetizer translates to “molten or melted cheese” which is exactly what queso Chihuahua was made to do. 
  • Pizzas and Casseroles: This cheese also works well as a pizza topping or melted over a casserole.  
  • Quesadillas, enchiladas, and grilled cheese sandwiches: This cheese melts perfectly for quick and easy meals. 
  • Cheese Platter: This cheese is great for snacking on with crackers, but it is also well received when presented to guests as part of a platter.

FAQs About Queso Chihuahua

When baking a cheesy casserole, it is important to remember that cheese is delicate and can “break” if it gets too hot. Queso Chihuahua holds together remarkably well when exposed to high heat. However, for best results, make sure that the oven is no hotter than 375 degrees Fahrenheit. The same rule applies to cheese sauces which are best made on a low heat. 

The flavor can become tangier like a mild cheddar as it ages, but it is not a spicy cheese. If you are looking for a spicy cheese, try selecting a Queso Chihuahua with jalapeños added to it. The infusion of red and green jalapeños looks very festive, but it also adds a burst of flavor and a touch of heat. 

This cheese is safe to consume while pregnant, but choose Queso Chihuahua made from pasteurized milk and not raw milk. Queso Chihuahua, which has been produced in the United States, will most likely be made with pasteurized milk which follows food safety guidelines and extends the shelf life of the cheese.
