Ingredients (makes about 4 1/2 cups)

  • 1 lb Monterey jack cheese, cubed (450 g)
  • 8 oz cream cheese (230 g)
  • 1 cup canned diced green chiles (140 g/ 5 oz)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (14 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp butter (14 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1 cup raw full-fat milk (230 g/ 8 oz) - see note below

Can I use queso fresco instead of Monterey jack?

Reply

I think you can - it is a different type of cheese, more similar to feta so the texture will be different.

For some reason the link for keto tortilla chips didn’t do anything in the app.
