A Mexican cheese that was named for the cheese makers who originally produced this variety, which were the Mennonites living in Chihuahua, Mexico. Pale white in color, Menonita Cheese provides a very mild flavor with a semi-firm texture. It is made from pasteurized and unpasteurized raw cow's milk. This variety of cheese may also be referred to a Queso Menonita or Campresino Menonita which refers to the compression used to make the cheese, similar to Cheddar processes. Menonita is a good melting cheese or a cheese to use in baked foods such as casseroles and cheese sauces. It is also a good snacking cheese. If necessary to substitute, use a mild Cheddar, Gruyere, Gouda, or Muenster.
