Duroblando, correctly spelt as Duro Blando is a Hispanic cheese introduced by the Spanish in the 15th century. It is mostly found in the Latin countries of South America including Mexico and the Caribbean.

Duro Blando is a dry, aged cheese with a firm yet crumbly texture. It is salty and strong flavoured providing a somewhat nice mild smoky flavour that goes perfect with quesadillas, pupusas, salads, enchiladas, tostadas, refried-beans, pasta, traditional bean dishes and baleadas.

The cheese pairs well with fruits like pears, apples, crackers and nuts, ciders and fruit beers.
