can I use Mexican queso fresco in place of paneer?

The Mexican grocery store down the street from me sells great fresh cheese. It reminds me a lot of paneer. We make curries that I would love to add paneer to, but I don't have a good source for paneer and only rarely do I want to take the time to make it fresh.

So, how would queso fresco do in place of paneer? Would it stay solid (not melt) like authentic paneer?
