GOAT MILK YOGURT QUESO

Can we just skip dinner and only have this goat milk yogurt queso? Adapted from the lovely Molly Yeh’s yogurt queso recipe, we swapped out the traditional greek for our smooth, rich and tangy goat milk yogurt. Skeptical? Don’t be. The goat milk yogurt gave it the perfect amount of tang that had our taste buds absolutely singing, and we know yours will be too.
