Don Froylan Queso Botanero 12 oz
You know that old rule that you shouldn’t play with your food? Well go ahead and throw it out the window, because queso Botanero practically demands that you have fun while handling it. It achieves its round shape by being stretched into ribbons and then wrapped up, giving it the appearance of a pudgy, springy ball of dough. But dough it is not—queso Botanero is Mexican string cheese studded with cilantro and jalapeno, and it pulls apart like a good mozzarella. If you’ve been having trouble perfecting the art of the quesadilla, chances are you aren’t using this cheese. It creates that thick, bouncy, melty quality you see in plenty of the great Mexican dishes, chile relleno and tostadas included. Finally, you can feel good about having fun with your food—great flavor demands it.
