I was invited to a Virtual Cooking Class to learn more about new cheese "Gayo Azul Cotija" and how it would be perfect for enhancing any Hispanic dish, including Enchiladas!

Note: I received a product sample for review purposes. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

The Gayo Azul Cotija, available exclusively in wedge form, is a Mexican-style aged, fresh cow's milk cheese named after Cotija, Mexico. Cotija cheese is a great topping for enhancing any dish since it has a sharp, slightly salty flavored with a firm, crumbly texture.

For the Enchiladas dish, they added sprinkled crumbles of Gayo Azul Cotija cheese over the tortillas minutes before removing them from the oven.

But you can use Gayo Azul Cotija cheese in other recipe includeing:

  • Street Corn — also known as Elote, or Grilled Mexican Street Corn; this dish is made by covering corn on the cob with lime juice, mayonnaise, chili powder, and Gayo Azul® Cotija cheese.
  • Tacos — add flavor and texture by using Gayo Azul Cotija cheese instead of shredded cheese for an authentic touch.
  • And so much more.

In addition to the new Cotija cheese, Gayo Azul also offers a variety of products, including Dutch cheeses like Gouda, Edam, and European Swiss, and fresh Queso Blanco Queso Para Frier, all available in convenient sizes.

Gayo Azul products can be found at local grocers throughout the Northeast and Southeast, including BJ's Wholesale, Fresco Y Mas, Key Foods, Market Basket, Presidente, Publix, Sedano's, and Winn Dixie Supermarkets, as well as Walmart Supercenters.
