Queso Fresco
Simple, elegant and uniquely fresh, it’s best cubed or crumbled atop salads or just about any dish in need of a bright, cheese-filled dusting.

Queso Panela
Molded in a cheese basket, it’s also called queso de canasta (canasta meaning basket). For a savory snack, slice and sear in a hot pan.

Queso Oaxaca
Stringy and delicious, it’s traditionally stretched into ropes and rolled into a beautiful ball before being pulled apart for munching.
