Queso de Mezcla
also known as Tres Leches, which refers to the three types of milk that make up this smooth and nutty Spanish cheese: cow, sheep, and goat. It is reminiscent of cheese from the Basque region, like Ossau Iraty, but has a much nuttier flavor. It is cured in olive oil during the aging process, and has plenty of potent flavor but not strong enough to offend a palate that prefers lighter styled cheeses.
