Cuajada Cheese is traditional in Central American countries; it’s a soft, fresh cheese with a light and creamy flavor, not too salty and with a moist texture.

Tropical Cuajada Cheese has two presentations: in an egg shape that makes it easier to use if you need larger slices or pieces, or crumbled, in a convenient container to keep the cheese fresh if you need to reuse it.

The mild flavor of Cuajada Cheese makes it pair well with candied fruits, Colombian arequipe (dulce de leche), and bocadillo (guava paste). Enjoy it over a tortilla or tostada, with crackers, and use it to stuff vegetables, such as this Cheese Stuffed Chayote recipe. Cuajada Cheese is also used for desserts, like these Mini Guava Cheesecakes.
