Best Answer

Freezing leftover restaurant queso blanco may be successful if handled properly from the time it was made until placed in freezer and gently thawed before serving..

  • The first question should be - was the queso blanco handled properly at the party and not left out for a long time before placing in refrigerator?

  • It is not recommended to leave Queso blanco in refrigerator for more than 3-4 days so be sure your sauce/dip is still safe to eat before freezing.
  • Freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Safety and use recommendations for freezing:
  • In general, any cheese can be frozen. Of course, you want to thaw them gently in the refrigerator for a day or two before eating or cooking with them.
  • After thawing/heating, be sure the texture has not changed as this could indicate it is not safe to use.

This is an excellent tasting dip but i do not think it would freeze well but it will keep (unopened) for a very long time (seems like several months but not sure).


It may freeze okay but the consistency may not be as good and the taste will (I believe) not be as good. I think it may break up but I've never tried this and I do not know the full list of ingredients in this dip.
It seems there is a difference of opinion with cooks so you may just have to experiment with this particular product.

It will not freeze well. Both the taste and texture will be affected.

I do not think the consistency would turn out good.

But you can try small portion next time and test it out?

With the holidays coming up, I'd like to know if its possible to freeze homemade hummus and blue cheese dips. They are so convenient if guests drop by and it would be a life saver if I have containers ready to just whip out of the freezer! Does anyone have any experience if they were successful after they thawed out?

Hummus, yes, but if the BC dip has a mayo base mayo doesn't freeze well. Make it from sour cream or yogurt and your OK to freeze.

Hummus freezes amazingly. Homemade, store-bought, any kind of bean, doesn't matter. I usually make a triple batch or more and stick the extra in the freezer. I do suggest you line your freezer dish with plastic wrap before adding the dip to cut down on the chance the scent will permeate your freezer. I put mine in ziptop bags and just double bag them.


I have no idea about the bleu cheese dip. Maybe just try a small batch? Freeze over night and then thaw to see how it works?
Sorry I couldn't be more help!

I had a gallon of milk and lots of cheese and I was going on vacation and I didn't want to throw them away. I made a large batch of cheese sauce and I wanted to know if I could freeze it and if so for how long?
