A New Twist on Fudge – Mexican Fudge Recipe
By Susan Dee Boy
This Mexican Fudge recipe is a new twist on fudge as we all know it. Leaving out all the sugar, this fudge is high in calcium since it uses two kinds of cheese. Yes, this isn’t a dessert. It’s a delicious hot cheese dip.
This recipe will be great for using as an appetizer or a dish at a party. With the holidays coming up, we’re always looking for a new recipe to serve at our parties.
It’s an easy and quick to prepare recipe that only takes five minutes to prepare. With only four ingredients included, it’s economical, too. It can be prepared ahead of time and then put into the oven right before the party begins.
I feel that it’s called Mexican Fudge because in the Latino countries, they use a lot of different cheeses in their simple meals. Also, the cheese dip is thick like a fudge because of all the cheeses. Many times, when the food is Latino bases, they are named as Mexican. In Honduras, they eat a white cheese at breakfast time. They, also, eat their corn tortillas toasted cheese sandwich style. They put a cheese called quesillo in between two tortillas and grill it. Quesillo is like mozzarella cheese except cheaper. There are many other types of foods that they prepare that they put in cheese even though most of their foods are a simple type of food and economical due to their poor living standards.
Mexican Fudge Recipe
2 cups of Monterey Jack cheese shredded
2 cups of sharp Cheddar cheese shredded
1/2 cup hot taco sauce
Grate the two kinds of cheeses or buy them already grated. It is cheaper to grate them yourself with a hand grater or a food processor. Then mix the Monterey Jack cheese and the sharp Cheddar cheeses together in a bowl and set aside. Next, mix the eggs and the taco sauce together. You can make your own taco sauce to save money and usually, is a better tasting sauce. You can find recipes for taco sauce on the internet. Now, place half of the cheese mixture into the bottom of a 13×9 inch baking dish. Next, pour the egg and taco sauce mixture on top of the cheeses in the baking dish then, evenly sprinkle the remaining cheese mixture on top of the taco sauce mixture.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake for half of an hour or until it’s slightly golden brown. Take out of oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Serve with taco or corn chips to dip. Buen Provecho!
