Chanco is a washed-curd, semi-hard cheese representing almost 50% of Chilean cheese consumption. It originates from the Chanco farm in Maule Region but today is produced all over south-central Chile.The cheese has a yellowish mass with irregular eyes scattered throughout the soft and smooth body. Made with raw full fat milk, this cheese is mild tasting, soft but firm enough to slice with reduced lactose content. Also, it melts beautifully. It can be compared to American Munster in taste and texture.
