Product Inspiration
Queso Cotija:
One of Mexico’s most recognizable
cheeses, Queso Cotija comes to
America where it’s still made the
traditional way. The strong, salty tang
ratchets up the flavor in Mexico’s iconic
recipes and will bring authenticity
to your dishes. Akin to the crumbly
texture and non-melting profile of
Parmesan, this cheese can be used
to top, garnish and accent your
authentic Mexican or Tex Mex
inspired recipes. Ready to grate,
crumble or slice.
Queso Menonita:
With its mild flavor and dairy notes,
excellent stretch and melt point, and
natural pale, yellow color, Queso
Menonita is the ultimate complement
to your Mexican dishes…but don’t
stop there! When this cheese melts,
it won’t separate into oil and solids,
making it ideal for grilled cheese
sandwiches, pizza, cheeseburgers
and more.
