When it comes to Mexican food, no dish is complete without cheese. The right cheese is what makes Mexican cuisine authentic. There are various incredible Mexican cheeses like Asadero, Queso, Colby, and many more.

It’s made with a perfect blend of Mexican cheeses and can be used to sprinkle on top of nachos, quesadillas or any other Mexican specialty.

Now you might be wondering what exactly is Mexican shredded cheese blend?

It’s a cheese blend that includes Natural Cheddar, Asadero, Queso Quesadilla, and Monterey Jack. These cheeses are grinded up and mixed together in very particular portions, so that the cheese melts or mixes perfectly with any ingredient used to prepare an authentic Mexican dish. All four-cheeses play their own role in making the shred blend shine.

Cheddar cheese – Provides great color and theunique sharp and nutty flavor

Monterey Jack – Gives a very distinct tasteand helps to blend the other three cheeses.

Asadero – Provides a creamy texture that is perfect for melting

Queso Quesadilla – Contributes a nice acidity to the mix
