Caldo de queso

Caldo de queso is a traditional cheese soup made in places of Hermosillo, Sonora (North Mexico).[1]

The soup is made with boiled water, diced potatoes, onions, tomato, chile verde and oregano. Tomato puree or dehydrated chicken broth might be also added to the mix as condiments.

The cheese is only added in the end, once the other are ingredients are boiled, to prevent gratination. It's the most usually prepared with dices of queso fresco, the contact with the boiling soup heats the cheese and gives it a gummy, chewable texture, in turn it melts slightly giving the soup a characteristic flavour.

Caldo de queso is generally accompanied by chiltepin and/or totopos (fried corn tortilla chips).
