I just returned from Brazil and am now addicted to this amazing little cheesy bread. I have an authentic recipe and have located the manioc flour. Does anyone know if the Minas cheese is available in CT? If not, does anyone have any substitution suggestions?

    Ecuadorian pan de queso is similar. Check this blog and discussion

    "1/2 cup (packed, about 66 grams) grated cheese, your preference, though we got the best results from Mexican farmer's cheese - queso fresco"
