My Thoughts

When I think of queso, I think of melted cheese and maybe some spices or peppers. This book has definitely opened my eyes to so many delicious versions of queso that I really need to try! I love how this book talks about the different types of chilies and cheese and how to use them. I really like how Fain included the history of each dish. I highly recommend checking out this book. This amazing cookbook can be found on Amazon here!
