A white or pale yellow colored, mild tasting Mexican cheese, which is excellent for melting when baking or grilling. Similar to Provolone, it is a cheese used in many different recipes, especially roasted or baked Mexican dishes. It is somewhat elastic in texture and provides a flavor that can be sweet and somewhat buttery or fairly strong and tangy like a cheddar cheese. When served in Mexico, it is often used for Queso Fundido, a Mexican fondue. Queso Asadero is also referred to as Oaxaca or Queso Oaxaca cheese, because it originated in the Oaxaca region of Mexico, and may be commonly thought to be the same as cheese from the Chihuahua region. If necessary, substitute Fontina or Monterey Jack.
