elote queso

Here, take a chip, because it’s elote queso o’clock which happens to be my FAVORITE o’clock of the summer.

This queso, man. This queso is a grill favorite (elotes) and an app favorite (queso) all bubbled up together in one skillet:

  • a creamy, classic, smooth-melting queso base
  • fresh jalapeños and garlic
  • roasted corn
  • cilantro
  • chili powder
  • queso fresco cheese*

Grab a handful of lime-drenched chips and YOU ARE IN BUSINESS.

A very important element in any queso is, obviously, the cheese.

You guys have used this cheese before, right? I occasionally stock up on the essentials at Costco, so there is a 100% chance that at any given time, you will find the world’s largest bag of V&V Supremo® Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese in my refrigerator.

This stuff is just THE BEST. And being that it is actual, real, delicious cheese that melts smoothly and perfect for Mexican recipes? It wins over processed cheese every time. No further discussion necessary.

Smooth melt, mild flavor, and quality ingredients. V&V Supremo® Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese is the one you want.

(You don’t have to shop at Costco to buy it – although purchasing a hugely huge bag of it is very advisable. Use this handy finder to see where you can pick it up. While you’re there, check out their other awesome Mexican-inspired recipes.)

So melty cheese, roasted corn, fresh cilantro, jalapeños and garlic, queso fresco and limey chips – here it all is.

Your summer plans (and mine, totally mine) summed up in one glorious photo:

Add a drink and a pair of sunglasses and go ahead living your best elote queso life. Because that’s what it’s all about.
