We tried a couple recipes, but this was voted the best: it mixes 3 of the most delicious Mexican cheeses: the saltines of the queso fresco, the tanginess of the queso chihuahua and the creaminess of the queso Oaxaca that blends all ingredients in just a delicious perfection. We are fun of spicy Mexican Fondue, thus we added KanKun Mexican Jalapeno sauce to bring a delicious mild kick to the dish.
