Oaxaca cheese 8oz

Oaxaca cheese, also known as queso Oaxaca, is a semi-soft, white Mexican cheese that originated in the southern state of Oaxaca. Its distinctive appearance and stringy texture have often led to comparisons with mozzarella, earning it the nickname "Mexican mozzarella."
This cheese is made using cow's milk and is renowned for its fresh, slightly tangy flavor with a hint of saltiness. It has a smooth, elastic texture, making it ideal for melting. Oaxaca cheese is often shaped into a ball, with the interior pulled and stretched into long, thin strands to form a distinctive braided appearance.
Traditionally, Oaxaca cheese is a staple in Mexican cuisine, particularly in dishes such as quesadillas, enchiladas, and chiles rellenos. When melted, it produces long, silky strands that add a delightful stretchiness to dishes.
