Pace Four Cheese Salsa con Queso - The New King of Queso?
Regular reader and contributor Etathed - the East Coast Queso specialist has announced his crowning of "The King of Quesos": The New King of Queso? Queso dips are one of life's great pleasures. Until now the best store bought, readily available queso in my opinion has been the Tostitos Salsa con Queso. In fact that was just about the only queso out there. Well about a yeah ago they released a Monterey jack queso that definatly stood up to the classic queso. I have been nothing but faithful to Tostitos quesos, until now. Im not sure if this is new, or a product i have just been overlooking, which is possible as it is in the isle buy the taco fixings, NOT the chip isle. Pace Four Cheese Salsa con Queso. Thats right four cheese. Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Asadero, and Queso Blanco all in one jar. People, this offering tops all others i have found on the queso market. The label reads: "Two of these cheeses are pretty hard to find. But that didn't stop us. Asadero and Queso Blanco are both mild creations originating in mexico. The unsung heroes of this dip, they let the jalapenos, onions, and sweet red peppers make a little noise." Its true. It is a fantastic flavor and tastes much more "authentic" than Tostinos' offerings. My only complaint is the tall jar, once the queso level falls below 50 percent, its tough to get to. For those who like to pour their queso over chips or into a bowl for heating, this dip is more pour friendly than those from Tostitos. Despite Tostitos having a better designed jar for dippings, Pace's offering comes with a full ounce more of queso. 16oz compared to Tostitos 15 oz. Trust me if you like queso you will love this dip. I suggest you get at least 2 jars next time you go to the store, as upon first having this dip it is likely you may slip into a queso bender. Hail to the New Queso King!
