How do I love thee? Let me count the shreds. ~Joe Shakespeare
Trader José’s Fancy* Shredded Mexican Blend is our ideal blend for dishes with a Mexican flair, with sharp Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Asadero and Queso Blanco cheeses. It’s 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. All of the cheeses are well-known for their meltability, which makes them particularly well-suited to dishes like burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas and tacos. And 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, and makes a distinctively flavored grilled cheese sandwich.
We’re selling each 12 ounce resealable package of Trader José’s Fancy Shredded Mexican Blend for $3.29, 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.
