Best substitute for chihuahua cheese?

smsliu Sep 27, 2006 03:24 PM

This is for a budin de elote recipe. I've read, variously, to use Munster, cheddar, or Monterey Jack. Does anyone familiar with Chihuahua cheese know which would be best (or another alternative?) TIA!

    Chihuahua is a mild melting cheese, so I would probably use MJ. If you're using it in a corn pudding, though, I think a mild Cheddar would be good too.
