Have you ever heard of grass fed cheese? Rumiano Fine Natural Cheese uses milk from cows that are fed only grass, not corn and grain. Grass is more naturally and easily digested in the cows’ stomach. According to Rumiano, “Studies have shown that there are many health benefits, not only for the cows, but the humans who consume meat and dairy products from these “grass fed” cows as well.” Wouldn’t you want to eat a cheese that has better health benefits?

This is my second time around reviewing Rumiano cheeses. I jumped at the chance to sample these cheeses again because I loved them the first time around! Rumiano flavored cheese has actual pieces of the spices and foods that flavor them, not just “flavoring.”
I have to say that my favorite is still Pepper Jack. I love to grate it and sprinkle it over chicken tacos – it gives them just a little more of a kick, and is super creamy when it melts. Rumiano Original Jack is good with anything, from sandwiches to quesadillas. It has a great buttery taste, and who doesn’t like the taste of butter, right? I love the Garlic Jack sprinkled over hot potato soup, gives it such good flavor.
Here’s a yummy way to use Rumiano Family Organic Jalapeno Jack Cheese: (My version of a spicy quesadilla!) Slice a chicken breast thinly and saute with minced yellow onions. When cooked through, arrange on a 8″ tortilla and top with Rumiano Jalapeno Jack Cheese, followed by another tortilla. Grill over medium heat in fry pan until both sides are crispy and cheese is melted inside. Top with sliced avocado and a splash of hot sauce.
Although not yet available in my local store, Rumiano has a nice variety of organic cheeses as well. These are non-GMO and made with organic ingredients in Northern California. The organic choices are Chipotle Cheddar, Colby, Fontina, Gouda, Havarti, Medium Cheddar, Mild Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, Reduced Fat Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, and Mozzarella. I can’t wait to try the Gouda and Havarti cheeses! Think about how many varieties of grilled cheese sandwiches you can make with Rumiano cheeses.
