Queso Panela by Queso Del Valle
Queso Panela is a classic
, meaning that it's a simple fresh cheese often made in the home. Sometimes called basket cheese, or
queso de canasta
, this cheese is just fresh cow's milk curd drained overnight in a wicker basket. Although today the baskets are made of easy-to-clean plastic or metal, this cheese is called for in many traditional recipes, making it a staple in many Mexican kitchens. It can be simply enjoyed with some herbs and lime juice as a spread, or used to enrich sauces, stuffings and casseroles. But try crumbling a bit on top of a taco, salad, or bowl of chili for a simple, classic snack.
Made from pasteurized, rBST-free cow's milk.
