Asadero is a white, semi-firm cheese originally from Mexico. It may also be called Oaxaca. It is a pasta-filata (stretched curd) cheese similar to Mozzarella.

The cheese has a light taste that is slightly tangy. Asadero is a good cheese for cooking because when melted it doesn't become oily like many other cheeses.

The name Queso Asadero can be translated into English as "roasting cheese." The name Oaxaca comes from the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico.

Asadero comes in different shapes. It can be shaped into a ball, braided, or in sliceable bricks.

Where to buy

In the United States, Asadero can be found in some grocery stores in cities with large populations of Hispanic people.
