Queso Oaxaca

Oaxaca Product Picture


Oaxaca is one of the most popular cheeses in Mexico and originates from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Oaxaca is a favorite in many Mexican dishes because it is stringy when melted. When you cut into a dish stuffed with Oaxaca cheese, long, delicious strands of cheese will follow your fork when pulled. This semi-soft cheese has a similar texture to mozzarella cheese and has a mellow, salty flavor. This unique cheese is traditionally made by stretching the cheese curds into long strings and then the strings are wound into a ball or knot.
