A major group of Hispanic cheeses are melting cheeses. These Hispanic cheeses melt without separating into solids and oil. Hispanic melting cheeses are generally mild tasting and smooth textured. They are often eaten as a snack right out of the package. Usually, as their name suggests, they are melted in hot dishes. Hispanic melting cheeses, unlike common U.S. cheeses such as cheddar, do not separate into oil and solids when they are heated. Consequently, they make dishes like pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches, and cheese burgers "cheesier" and less greasy. Of course, they are invaluable in preparing Mexican dishes such as quesadillas and tacos.
Use of Hispanic melting cheeses like Queso Quesadilla or Asadero in popular dishes like quesadillas or nachos greatly increases the finished dishes' appeal. The diner is presented a plate with more cheese in the right place--on the tortilla or the chips--and less greasy oil all over the plate! Queso Quesadilla is a smooth, soft, mild and white cheese. Originally from the Mexican state of Chihuahua, this cheese is a family favorite throughout all of Mexico both for snacking and because it melts easily to make your favorite dishes rich and creamy.
