Cotija Cheese

2 Ratings: 4.0
A semi hard cow's milk cheese from Mexico.

Cotija is a mild, salty semi-hard cow's milk cheese from Mexico.

Cotija cheese is a delicious mild, salty, lightly aged cheese from Mexico. It's not particularly melty, but adds a boost of savory flavor to any Mexican-inspired (or not!) dish.

Some things to try:

- Grill fresh ears of corn until lightly charred and sweet. Rub with chili mayo (make your own by adding chile sauce to mayo), and sprinkle with cotija cheese all over. Serve with Micheladas or margeritas and enjoy!

- Taco night! Try soft corn tortillas with creamy spiced black beans, homemade red cabbage and apple slaw, small hunks of cotija, and a bright squeeze of lime.

- Grate cotija over cooked sweet plantains, and serve with a chile molasses sauce!

- It'd also be a wonderful garnish to any soup or salad! Try it over black bean soup or a tortilla salad.

Cotija is such a mild, friendly cheese, and it's a really great way to try something new, without having to stick your face into a wheel of stilton. If you want to meet a new cheese, this is a good one to try!
