FAQs about Cotija
Since it's so similar in texture and flavor to feta, you can swap out the feta for fresh Cotija in just about any recipe. Use aged Cotija instead of Parmesean or Romano. Similarly, you can use Queso Fresco instead of Cotija cheese in certain recipes, although the texture of Queso Fresco is creamier.
Like most cheese, Cotija is high in calcium with 31% of the daily value, or 300mg, in 1 ounce of cheese. It has 100 calories, of which 72 come directly from fat. It also includes 4% of Vitamin A, but it does have 18% of your sodium for the day with 429.6mg.
The simple answer is that it depends on which type of Cotija you want to freeze. You cannot freeze fresh Cotija as it will change the texture completely. You can freeze aged Cotija if it's in block form. Wrap the block of Cotija in plastic and seal it tightly. Place it in a freezer bag, and label the bag. You can keep the cheese in the freezer for 3-6 months. To thaw, simply move it to the refrigerator. Keep in mind that the texture might change slightly if the cheese is frozen and thawed.
