Pan de Queso, also known as Pan de Yuca, or Colombian cheese rolls are delicious, pillowy, cheesy rolls that are naturally gluten-free! This recipe for pan de queso is super easy, with no boiling required. (gluten-free, nut-free, vegetarian)




  1. Combine tapioca flour, baking powder, salt, queso fresco, mozzarella, butter and egg in a food processor. (I use this one.) Pulse for up to minutes, or until a smooth ball forms.
  2. If after two minutes, a ball doesn’t form, add 1 tbsp milk with processor running, until you have a smooth ball.
  3. Scoop dough by the tablespoon and roll into balls. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Heat oven to 500°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  5. Place chilled dough onto the baking sheet, 1-2 inches apart, and bake for 7-10 minutes, or until rolls are just lightly golden.
  6. Remove from oven and enjoy warm.
