What Is Cotija?
“Cotija is a crumbly white cow’s milk cheese that gets its name from the town of Cotija in Michoacán, Mexico. It’s a staple of Mexican cuisine and appears as a topping for everything from nachos to enchiladas to elote (Mexican street corn). Cotija cheese can be aged anywhere from three months to a year. The longer the aging process, the saltier the flavor.”
