Manchego ranges in flavor from rich and mellow to salty or piquant, depending on age. Traditionally, Queso Manchego is made with milk from the Manchega breed of sheep in the La Mancha region of Spain. In the United States, Manchego is the name given to a cow’s milk cheese similar to Colby, but with a more unique flavor that develops intensity with age. It has excellent melting properties and is a favorite in quesadillas.
