Oaxaca cheese also referred to as quesillo, is a white, semihard cheese from Mexico, similar to unaged Monterey jack, but with a mozzarella-like string cheese texture. Oaxaca has savory mellow buttery flavour and is a great melting cheese. The little salty and mild flavour make it is one of the most popular cheeses for preparing quesadillas. In addition, Oaxaca is an excellent stuffing cheese in baking recipes.
Sometimes a quesadilla just hits the spot! We dig quesadillas with La Vaqueta Oaxaca Cheese, El Popocatepetl White Corn Tortillas, and La Costena Refried Beans dipped in Market Salsa! The roasted poblano peppers in the salsa, the creaminess of the beans, the super stringy pull of the Oaxaca cheese makes a simple quesadilla outstanding!
