What is that white cheese that most Mexican taquerias use?
It does not taste like jack cheese. Is it one of those mexican cheeses that I see at the grocery store with the brand "Cacique."?

Cotija~ Known as "The Parmesan of Mexico" it was originally made with goat's milk. Modern Cotija is made with cow's milk. Cotija is firm and strongly flavored, perfect for grating. Great on top of refried beans, chili, salad or Mexican Lasagna-try it with your favorite mac n' cheese recipe. Serve Cotija with Sangria or Beaujolais, avocados, pears and apples, or simply scoop some up with a tortilla and refried beans.

If it is melty and drippy, it is probably queso quesadilla or queso chihuahua.
If it is crumbly, it is queso fresco.
I really like Cacique brand....they also make "crema poblana" that is soooo good instead of regular sour cream.

The two that come to mind are Queso Fresco or Queso Blanco.
