The Instacart guide to Oaxaca cheese products
With so many different types of cheeses available, how does one choose the perfect melty cheese? If cheese dips are a favorite, look no further than Oaxaca cheese. Oaxaca (pronounced Wah-ha-ka) cheese is a semi-hard cheese that is stretchy and creamy. When heated, it is the perfect melty cheese for cheese dips, nachos, chicken enchiladas, quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwich, or soup. Long strands of cheese will follow your fork or spoon when eating Oaxaca cheese!
Oaxaca has a mild, buttery taste, so it pairs nicely with spicy Mexican foods. This mild taste makes it a great snacking cheese too. It is quite versatile, so it can be a snack by itself or baked into a dish.
Oaxaca cheese is popular for dips. Hint: do not use shredded versions for dips. Use the Oaxaca cheese ball or rope segments. A homemade dip is the quintessential Mexican side dish that can be used in various ways: on top of tacos, burrito bowls, enchiladas, tamales, and taquitos.
To perfectly melt the cheese, heat it with half & half or milk on the stove top. Adding the milk allows the cheese to become soft and melt. Just simmer it because too much heat can add a crust along the edges. Then add green chiles, diced tomatoes, or cilantro to the dip. Dips can also be made in a slow cooker and kept soft for longer periods of time. The cheese tends to stay creamier with the even warming of a slow cooker. Be sure to stir it up occasionally. If microwaving the cheese, be sure to stir it at least halfway through for more even heating.
