Ecuadorian-Style Cheese

Cheeses Fresh Cheeses The Flavor of South America

Tropical Queso Ecuatoriano is a fresh cheese with a light flavor and a homemade style. It is perfect for traditional Ecuadorian dishes such as humitas, plantains with cheese, or llapingachos. In Ecuador, it’s common to consume this fresh and versatile cheese, either alone, as a side, or as part of many everyday recipes.

Some classic Ecuadorian lunch and dinner recipes made with Queso Ecuatoriano include locro de papa, a delicious traditional soup with potato and cheese; llapingachos are flattened potato cakes made with cheese, and onion; molo de papas is a rich, creamy mashed potato cooked with sofrito and cheese.

In Ecuador, Queso Ecuatoriano is consumed at breakfast in several ways:  fresh slices served with eggs and toast, or the classic bolón de verde (green plantain balls filled with cheese), or humitas (similar to tamales) stuffed with cheese.  All are delicious with coffee.

For a sweet finale, you can enjoy dulce de higo with cheese, which has a tasty combination of sweet figs in syrup and the natural salty flavor of the cheese. Or try the popular Ecuadorian cheese empanadas (empanadas de viento), which are filled with cheese and sprinkled with sugar.

As you can see, there are many delicious ways to enjoy Queso Ecuatoriano; we suggest you sample them all.
