Why Your Next Taco Filling Should Be Halloumi

Have you heard the good news about a halloumi? This hard goat and sheep’s milk cheese is so firm it can be cooked directly on the grates of a grill without melting, giving new meaning to “grilled cheese,” and it makes one dank taco.

Whether you cook it in a pan or on the grill, you get a flavorful, caramelised outside and a gooey, melty inside, with a richness that pairs well with fresh herbs, bright fruits and vegetables, and anything acidic or pickled.
