Land O’Lakes Ingredients Introduces New “Green Chile Queso” Dairy Seasoning

Land O’Lakes Ingredients recently announced the introduction of Green Chile Queso to its extensive line of cheese powders and seasonings. In the new seasoning, green chile, garlic and onion melt into cheese seasoned with tomato, white pepper, chili powder and jalapeños. Green Chile Queso is convenient for a variety of applications including snacks, baked goods, sauces, dips and salad dressings.

“We think it’s the perfect Tex-Mex fusion of flavors,” remarks Jim Jarman, marketing and sales leader for the Ingredients team at Land O’Lakes. “‘Spicy’ is now the number-one appetizer flavor in restaurants. ‘Queso’ has also seen tremendous growth as a salty snack flavor, along with ‘Green Chile’ and ‘Jalapeño’ flavors.” He adds, “If you put them all together, you not only get an exciting ingredient, but also a welcome proposition for consumers who are clearly hungry for all these tastes.”

Green Chile Queso leverages Land O’Lakes’ expertise in dairy-based ingredients, which includes cheese powders and seasonings, cheeses, milk powders, butter and whey. Land O’Lakes Ingredients continues to develop exciting new products for its Focus on Flavor program, which introduces current and prospective customers to dynamic new flavors.
