Queso Oaxaca

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.

Uses: When shredded, Oaxaca cheese is best served on top of beans, soups, tostadas, etc. To get more ideas on how to use Jaimito Oaxaca, check out the following recipes (OR check out our recipe page).
