Old El Paso Mexican Style Grated Cheese (Sainsbury’s)

I actually bought this cheese to use as part of a Mexican meal, but changed my mind and decided to see if it worked as cheese on toast. The grated cheese has lovely flecks of red and green from the chilli content, which is why I thought it would make a nice twist to regular cheese on toast.
I sprinkled the cheese on the toast, popped them under the grill, and watched as the cheese bubbled and went golden. This cheese is labelled as ‘medium’ in terms of spice level, and I think that that is a valid comment; it had a nice tang without it being uncomfortable. The grilled cheese is a mix of mozzarella and cheddar, the mozzarella added a lovely gooey feel and the cheddar added depth of flavour. All in all the experiment was a complete success, and I recommend giving it a go yourselves!

I love cheese, you can buy 'mexicana' cheese in blocks from the supermarket. I have never seen it grated like this. Yum yum yum.
