Queso fresco is a

Queso fresco is a traditional Mexican cheese which is a common ingredient in a wide range of dishes. The cheese is a quintessential part of Mexican cuisine, and is often available in Mexican markets and grocery stores.
The cheese is always made from cow's milk, and could be likened to farmer cheese or pot cheese. To make queso fresco, milk is curdled, salted, and lightly pressed. The aging process for the cheese is very brief, usually no more than a few days, and then the cheese is sent to market. Traditional queso freso is good for around five days, although many dairies add stabilizers and handle the cheese slightly differently to extend the shelf life.
Since queso fresco is best when it is as fresh as possible, the cheese should be purchased on the day it is to be used, ideally.
It can be kept wrapped in the fridge for several days, but it will start to lose texture and flavor.
