This Queso Fresco Dip is as fresh as it gets. Only a couple of ingredients and you have a tasty appetizer for Cinco De Mayo!
My sons have birthdays back-to-back in March and April so I pretty much feel like I’ve eaten cake every week for the last month. Not to mention my son was also baptized hence another
party celebration and…you guessed it,…more cake.
For my son’s baptism I made this Feta Dip which I love because it tastes so fresh and is so easy – double bonus. I was wondering if I could come up with a Mexican version. I started with some diced Roma tomatoes, cilantro, and red onion with a drizzle of olive oil and some lime juice to brighten it up. Next, I added some queso fresco which has the similar texture of feta but is a little less salty. If you can’t find queso fresco feta will work. I used some Old El Paso taco seasoning to add some flavor. Add more or less to your taste. Then mix it all together and you’re done. Serve with tortilla chips or sliced flour tortillas.

I was compensated by Old El Paso but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
