Queso fresco is a mild fresh cheese that adds delicious flavor to eggs and will soften but not become stringy and greasy. Use queso fresco in scrambles or omelets and garnish with avocado, black beans, cilantro and hot sauce.

This scrambled eggs with queso fresco recipe serve one. Simply add two more eggs for each additional person and another tablespoon or so of cheese.

  3. Garnish the eggs with avocado, black beans, cilantro or hot sauce.
