El Queso Cotija de Montaña is a seasonal cheese and is of limited production. Cotija cheese is produced only during the months of July through October because the cows are fed only on the rich grass that grows naturally on the mountains during the raining season, giving the cheese its unique color and flavor.
Yep, it's grass-fed. So we picked some up at Whole Paycheck yesterday and I tried a tiny, tiny amount crumbled on my mini-burgers last night. And I didn't get violently ill! How nice. I may put a little on my salad tonight. I won't make it a regular thing, but it is so nice to have it as a "special treat" option.
Lesson learned: grass-fed makes a difference.

I mean, really, shepherd, lamb, you're missing the point. Call it bean pie. And don't eat it - you'll just get low quality protein and gut irritation.)
