Queso Chihuahua or Chihuahua cheese is a soft white cow's-milk cheese of Mexican origin available in braids, balls or rounds. The cheese is named after its place of origin, the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It is also called queso menonita, after the Mennonite communities of northern Mexico that first produced it. This cheese is now made by both Mennonites and non-Mennonites throughout the state and it's sold all over the country.
Queso Chihuahua is good for melting, and is similar to a mild cheddar or Monterey Jack. It may be used in queso fundido (a fondue-like cheese dip), chili con queso, or sauces.
