Trader José's Fancy* Shredded Lite Mexican Cheese Blend is our ideal blend for making dishes with a Mexican flair, without an overabundance of fat & calories. Equal parts sharp Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Asadero and Queso Blanco cheeses, with half the fat of the "non-lite" version, this is a blend that's unique to Trader Joe's, and it boasts a unique flavor profile. The Jack, Asadero and Queso Blanco are mild, while the sharp Cheddar adds a bit of a bite. While some "lite" cheeses lack in meltability, this blend is delicate and creamy when melted. Don't let the name make you feel like you need to limit yourself to Mexican dishes. This blend is excellent in salads and atop soups, melted into scrambled eggs, and makes a distinctively flavored grilled cheese sandwich.
We're selling each 12 ounce resealable package of Trader José's Fancy Shredded Lite Mexican Blend for $3.99, a price that's not fancy at all.
*Fancy is not us being cheeky. It's a cheese industry term that refers to the thin size of the shred.
