Queso by 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.
My Thoughts: Queso is one of those things that most people love, even if it’s absolutely plain. However with some upcoming events I really wanted to up my game and when I saw this book was available I immediately wanted to get it to review! It is a smaller book (especially for a cookbook) but has a hardcover and gorgeous photography on the front. Going inside I absolutely LOVE the setup of this book, it’s incredibly easy to page through and find what you’re looking for. The recipes aren’t just for dips but so much more and each one is absolutely amazing. I completely recommend Queso! for anyone interested in the cheese.
