Cottage Cheese “Queso”

  • Author: Brita Britnell

This Cottage Cheese “Queso” is SO SIMPLE to make and has just 3 simple ingredients in it! It’s the perfect protein packed snack!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded*
  • 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning
  • salt as needed


  1. In a blender or food process (this can also be done in a bowl with an immersion blender), add in the cottage cheese, cheddar cheese and taco seasoning.
  2. Blend until creamy and no lumps remain. I needed to add about a tablespoon of water to thin my out a little.
  3. Pour into a bowl and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring in between. I microwaved mine for about a minute total. You want to stir in between though to avoid the cheese curdling.
  4. ENJOY!


*If you want this to be a little lighter, you can start with just 1/4 cup of cheddar and add more later as needed
