Known as the "Parmesan of Mexico", this cheese is strongly flavored, firm, and perfect for grating. It is used in Hispanic cooking in a manner similar to the way Parmesan is used in Italian cooking. Cotija is commonly used to add a lively garnish to common dishes. Simply sprinkle on top of refried beans, salads, quesadillas or enchiladas. In Mexico it is also widely used to enhance the flavor of many savory dishes by mixing directly into the casserole or recipe. In the U.S. it is increasingly popular on pasta. See for yourself how much zestier any pasta or even simple macaroni and cheese will taste with a sprinkle of Cotija! Handmade in Wisconsin, yet full of authentic Mexican flavor.
