Make Cotjia cheese by placing the dry cashews in a food processor and blending until they are in a fine crumble. Do not overblend or it will make cashew butter. Add the lemon juice, vinegar and salt and pulse until incorporated. It will be wet and crumbly, set aside.
Cut and scrape avocados into a bowl, do not mash yet.
Add the rest of the ingredients (except the cotjia cheese), and roughly chop and mix. You don’t want to make it too smooth, keeping this chunky is what makes it so good.
Sprinkle cotija cheese over the top, use as much as you want, dig in and enjoy!
The orange juice trick was a little secret a friend told me who used to work in a Mexican restaurant. It really adds a great twist of flavor! So although it's optional, I highly recommend it!
