Category: Cheese


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2-2 1/2 cups of “cooked” chicken.  I used left over rotisserie and chopped into bite size pieces.
  • 6-8 slices of cooked bacon…I lean towards LOTS of BACON
  • Assorted veggies that were in the fridge that I needed to use up..Brussel Sprouts, sliced, assorted colorful peppers, chopped, broccoli, chopped..you can use spinach, kale, onions you name it…and I sautéed them all together in a pan with bacon grease because you need to cook the veggies
  • 1 tbs of mince garlic that I added to the sautéed veggies along with some of my favorite seasonings…your choice!
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese…or you can use whatever you have on hand! I saved 1/2 of cheese to put on top
  • 1 cup of Guacamole Salsa that was staring me in the face but the recipe from “Wholesome Yum” suggested a ranch dressing…to time consuming to make and I cut it with 1/4 c of sour cream to make is less spicy (tho if it were just for me, I would not have cut it) and saved about 1/4 c to put on top along with the cheese.

"Say Cheese

First off, AIR is cheese’s worst enemy. When cheese is exposed to air, mold forms.

DOUBLE WRAP IT To keep cheese moist—but not mold-prone—first wrap it tightly in waxed or parchment paper and then loosely in aluminum foil.  Or, take the cheese wrapped in waxed or parchment paper and store with other wrapped cheeses in an airtight container!
And, PLEASE….even tho buying in “bulk” at Costco seems like such a deal…when you bring it home, cut it in half and freeze one half and then use the other.
