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.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Heat a teaspoon of butter or oil in a pan. Add the eggs. Stir as the eggs cook. When the eggs begin to get firm stir in the cheese and cook another 10 to 20 seconds.

  3. The cheese will add some salt to the eggs, so taste before adding more salt.

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

  5. Serve and enjoy!
