Spanish term or phrase: Queso latino
Is this literally "Latin cheese" in English or "Latin American Cheese" or is there another term?
When I search all I find is cheese but nothing specifically "latino" related to cheese.

Thanks for any help

latin cheese


Explanation:
This is not referring to a specific type of cheese. You are safe simply referring to cheese generally

Example sentence(s):
  • You will need cheese in your recipe to enhance the flavor

South American fresh cheese


Explanation:
I had always thought that 'fresh' chesee was a simplistic and innacurate translation, but research suggests that the term is correct in English!
In terms of a menu, putting things like 'Colombian/Venezuelan' fresh cheese might be erroneous. And 'Caribbean South American fresh cheese' would be more of the same, I would go for my suggestion. But then I would, wouldn't I?

Notes to answerer
Asker: We tend to use "cottage cheese" in the UK for what Spanish call "queso fresco" but for the rest you may be right Rick and "Latino" refers to "Latin American" cheese.

Similar to requesón:

(which we call "ricotta" cheese)

Reference

Reference information:
In Spain, you can find "Queso latino" in the supermarkets (at least in DIA). It comes in sealed plastic bags as it contains a lot of water and quite soft. I understand that in other locations it's name might be "queso fresco".

Doesn't look much like cottage cheese to me. Maybe Latin fresh cheese.
