Queso Fresco Dip

Who doesn’t love chips and dip? I feel like a broken record but I’ll say it again – I can eat chips and dip for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

They’re so easy to put together yet taste so yummy.

Creamy sour cream, fresh cilantro, crumbled queso fresco and a few Mexican spices are all you need to make this easy queso fresco dip!

I especially love sour cream dips like homemade Dill Dip. Plus, it makes eating raw veggies so easy!

I love hot dip and I love cold dip, but today I’ve got a chilled queso fresco dip for the summer.

It’s easy to transport if you’re going to a party with minimal prep and cleanup.

Queso fresco is a mild, crumbly cheese with a milky flavor. I love it crumbled over tacos which is exactly what this dip reminds me of.

Fresh cilantro is an absolute must for flavor. It really perks up all the flavors of the dip.

Bringing it all together are some dry pantry staple seasonings – cumin, garlic and onion.

If you want more flavor, you can certainly add more than is listed in the recipe. However, I recommend waiting until after the dip has had a chance to chill.

You can eat this dip right away if you want, but the flavors intensify in the refrigerator where they have a chance to mingle and bloom.

The beauty of dips is that they’re so easy to customize to your taste buds!

This dip is perfectly tasty without any heat, but we love things spicy around here so I recommending adding some chile. The sour cream will keep things cool.

If you want to make it spicy, add a few dashes of cayenne pepper or your favorite hot sauce.

We currently love this pepper plant sauce so much that my husband buys it by the half gallon. 😂


I love using my homemade Guajillo Chile Salsa since it gives it a smoky flavor as well.

I noticed on the tacos the dip looks thinner and I’m thinking I should have used Mexican sour cream instead of regular! But this dip is great! Using it for potato tacos tomorrow 😋 Thank you so much for sharing!

Pretty sure sour cream is sour cream wherever you go. Honestly, it probably was because the tacos were hot so it kind of melted a bit, or you could always add a splash of milk to thin it out too, I'm sure.

I bought some Queso Fresco, and I wasn't sure how to use the rest of it up. (I don't have tacos all that often.) I wish I had seen this back then! But I'll keep in mind for next time.
