Cotija 283g - Named after the town of Cotija, Michoacán where it originated, Cotija cheese has a strong, salty flavor and mostly used as a topping or mixed into sauces. Traditionally, Cotija is made with cow’s milk and is a seasonal cheese produced by artisan cheese makers living high in the mountains. Cotija rates as one of Mexico’s most recognized cheeses.
Manchego 283g - Manchego is one of the world’s cheeses with deep history and heritage. Originating from the La Mancha region of Spain, Manchego was made from the milk of sheep of the manchega breed. The Mexican version comes from Spain’s influence and instead of sheep it is made with cow’s milk.
Oaxaca 283g - Oaxaca [pronounced Wuh-HAH-kuh] was created long ago in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, for which it’s named. Belonging to the mozzarella family, it is a semisoft, white, artisan cheese made from cow’s milk. This unique cheese is made by stretching the curd into long ribbons that are most traditionally gently wound into a knot or formed into a ball. Like Mozzarella, Oaxaca is traditionally dipped into salt water at the end of the process to form a thin rind. Cacique’s Oaxaca cheese is made in a long rope then wound into a knot, in keeping with tradition.
