Mexicana cheese is a soft mild cheddar with peppers and chilies running through it. Available as original hot for those of you who are
The first thing I tried were the Mexicana slices (a brilliant invention as the cheese itself is quite soft so can be difficult to slice, especially thinly ) on a burger. Appropriate as Mexicana are sponsoring the National Burger Awards
I've tried the extra hot cheese on toast (and discovered that I prefer it cold and eaten with biscuits) and I'm planning some spicy cheese and pineapple on sticks, a hotter version of a 70s party snack - and much underrated. I think that Mexicana agree with me as they have a pack of 'Hot Shots' just crying out for the pineapple treatment.
|I claim this cheese for me!
I'll be posting any other recipe ideas I try with the cheese, I expect I shall try it on nachos, and pizza next.
I think it's safe to say that I think if you like spicy food then you need Mexicana in your fridge.
Disclosure - I was sent the cheese to review but the obsessive lust I feel for it is all my own.
