What is it?

Oaxaca cheese (pictured top left in the photo) is a soft, Mexican cow’s milk cheese that melts easily. It’s widely available in supermarkets in the Southwest but is increasingly found across the country. It is delicious on pizzas, over nachos, or in grilled cheese sandwiches.

Don’t have it?

Mozzarella makes the best substitute.
