Mexican Heritage: Cheese

Mexican Heritage: Cheese

Mexican food presents itself in many comforting ways while also touting big flavors. This magic is created with layers, including one ingredient that has its own universal language—cheese. Just to name a few: hard, salty Cotjia cheese is perfect for crumbling; soft, mild Chihuahua known for easy melting; and aged cheese imparts sharp saltiness (and is typically rolled in paprika for additional flavor). With unique tastes and textures, Mexican cheeses offer the perfect authentic crowning touch across the menu, from authentic dishes to inspiring mashups.
