Happy Christmas! This is always one of my favorite holidays – I love the bright colors, light,  the margaritas, and especially the food. This is a Christmas  cheese board is a twist on the standard version,  I took some of my favourites Mexican Cheeses , produced by Gringa Dairy artisan cheese: creamy delicious queso fresco, queso Oaxaca and queso Chihuahua all surrounded  with salsas, fruits and pickles.  I like adding some drops of habanero on top for the magic KanKun kick.

Queso Oaxaca

The “mozzarella of Mexico” (sold as quesillo in Oaxaca) is a ball of cheese created by rolling up broad skeins of cheese whose texture resembles that of string cheese. Shredded, it can top refried beans, tostadas, and soups. Sliced, it melts wonderfully for quesadillas.

Queso Fresco

The name means “fresh cheese.” In this case, it’s a salty cheese that’s usually enjoyed crumbled but can also be sliced or melted. Use it on refried beans, enchiladas, or stuffed in chilies.


Queso chihuahua

Named for the Mexican state from which it originates. When fresh, it resembles a mild Cheddar in taste and texture. As it ages, its flavor becomes tangy. You can grate it to top dishes, or stuff it into chile rellenos or tamales.
