What to buy: Asadero is a mild Mexican cheese that melts well. If you can’t find it, try substituting mozzarella or Monterey Jack.
Game plan: For a slacker solution, leave out the shrimp, add a little more asadero, and make it a cheese quesadilla.

Beverage pairing: Pacifico, Mexico. You can’t go wrong when matching a light, easy-drinking Mexican lager with cheese, shrimp, and tortillas. Just make sure you have a little squeeze of lime and a pinch of salt for the beer.
