Asadero cheese

Other names: Queso Quesadilla cheese
Spanish name: Asadero

The traditional use for this mild, chewy cheese is a filling for chiles rellenos and a popular Mexican dish called chile con queso. In Qaxaca trompillos (wild berries) are used in the cheese making process and this imparts a distinctive flavor not found in Northern Mexico or in the U.S. versions.  You can substitute Teleme (referred to as a "poor man's brie from California) or Muenster cheese.  Asadero is made in the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Michocan
