Good and it!

Makes great cheese dip
By Sharon Ellis

My husband melts this with white American for some great cheese dip. He adds just a little bit of milk and some times a little bit of cream cheese to make it creamy. Family and friends love it.

By Doralee Strickland

I highly recommend this cheese! we just love it... we use this cheese for just about everything! it adds the kick that we are looking for for heat... Great Product..

By Robin D. Roberts

Enjoyed the flavor but the soft texture of the cheese was not to my liking. Will stick to more firmer varieties.

Makes Great chili queso dip
By Sharon Ellis

Melt this with a little bit of milk and white American and you have chili queso dip. Perfect heat. Our sons loves it sliced on his hamburgers. Can not find anything close to the heat where we live. Also makes great spicy grill cheese sandwiches.

Did you mention heat
By Sheila Whitesitt

I give this a 100% rating, but only because I'm sure if one could taste it , it would be as good as other cheeses from here. It was way, way toooooo hot to enjoy. I would not buy it again, but I'm sure there are those who think it is a good thing!
