Cacique’s Oaxaca cheese is semisoft, smooth, stringy, white, artisan cheese made from cow’s milk. It has a mellow, earthy flavor and is similar to an American String cheese or Mozzarella, though more buttery with a far superior “melt.” Shredded, it can top refried beans, tostadas, and soups. Sliced, it melts wonderfully for quesadillas or served with chile de agua. Small 1-inch pieces are often eaten as snacks and enjoyed with a drink. Perfect for quesadilla and empanadas.
