NOTE: What is Cotija Cheese?
Cotija is an aged Mexican cheese made from cow's milk and named after the town of Cotija, Michoacán. White in color and firm in texture, its flavor is salty and milky. "Young" cotija cheese has been described as akin to a mild feta, while aged cotija is more comparable in flavor to hard, aged cheeses like Parmesan.
