When people first dive into mexican cooking there can be a bit of a learning curve with ingredients...names & where to purchase them.
Thankfully, before kids, my husband & I spent our first years married seeking out where to buy these interesting, delicious ingredients.
This is just a small corner in the world of mexican products...
Cacique is a great brand available at most stores, especially Walmart
Mexican Crema: similar to sour cream, watered down with heavy cream
Queso Fresco: fresh cheese, like a mild feta
Cotija: a stinky, aged cheese. Like a mexican blue cheese
Quesadilla or Oaxaca cheese: a melty white cheese
