“Just goes to prove that Queso can be made with almost any cheese. The important factor in making good queso is to use a processed cheese (like Velveeta) for at least one of the cheese choices. A mixture of smoked Gouda and regular Gouda is recommended and gives this a subtle smoke flavor that really adds depth. If necessary, this can be made using 8 oz of regular Gouda. Developed for RSC #11.”
