1/2 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon dried crumbled Mexican oregano

1 teaspoon chipotle powder

5 cloves garlic

One 10-ounce round disk Oaxaca cheese

2 bolillo rolls, sliced


  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, oregano, chipotle powder and garlic until well combined. 
  2. Meanwhile, carve out about a 1-inch-deep hole in the center of the cheese to form a bowl. Place the cheese in a glass bowl and pour the olive oil mixture inside the cavity and all over the cheese, including the sides. Let stand for 1 hour at room temperature. Serve alongside sliced bolillo rolls.
