About this Article
It wasn't that long ago that if you wanted to make authentic Mexican quesadillas you needed to head to an ethnic grocer to track down chihuahua cheese. Or you punted and used cheddar, or maybe mozzarella. People just weren't familiar with Mexican cheese. Today, Hispanic-style cheeses are made throughout Mexico and in the United States and share space in the diary case with American, English and European varieties, making it much easier to add authenticity to your Cinco de Mayo menu.
