Cheese of the Month | January
Clock Shadow Creamery in Milwaukee, WI
Menonita is a semi-soft, mild Mexican cheese that melts beautifully. It's perfect for grating into quesadillas, queso fundido, and on top of nachos and enchiladas.
Although it's a Mexican cheese, don't limit it to Mexican dishes! With its superior melting qualities and mild flavor, it would be an excellent choice for grilled cheese, fondue, or mac and cheese!
