Expert Tips

Queso fresco is a creamy, white Mexican cheese that crumbles easily and can be found in the cheese aisle of most supermarkets. Shredded Monterrey-Jack cheese can be substituted as well.

If a spicier taco is desired, medium or hot-flavored enchilada sauce can be substituted for the mild variety.
