Velveeta cheese is probably my only weakness when it comes to overly processed foods and ingredients. I can slice off and eat it cold. One day I was in a hurry and started making queso and realized I didn’t have enough, so I wondered can I just make it? Answer is yes!!! It tastes great, is less processed, and is just as creamy.
Full time: 24 hours
Makes an approximately 2 lb. Cheese block
You will need:
5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 package unflavored gelatin (1 1/2 tsp)
* small side note on this, you need a large food processor to fit this. If you have a small one I recommend making this in to batches and pour into the same pan. Just remember to divide everything in half for each batch.
Let us begin:
Line a small loaf pan with plastic wrap.
In a food processor combine water, milk, and gelatin. Process until gelatin is dissolved.
Add in all the cheese and process until smooth, 2-3 minutes.
Quickly pour into loaf pan.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator.
Let sit for 24 hours.
Remove from plastic wrap to aluminum foil for storage, enjoy!
