Spice up your next meal with a great recipe from Cache Valley® 

Cache Valley is a real place. A naturally beautiful valley in Utah. It’s that wholesome place that inspires Cache Valley® to create the rich, flavorful cheese that brings this recipe to life. 

You may not know that tomatillos are more than just “little tomatoes.” They’re a separate variety of fruit with their own distinct flavor, and every facet of that bold and slightly sweet taste comes to life in this roasted chicken enchilada casserole.

Hearty shredded chicken, delicious Cache Valley® cheese, and just the right amount of spice from a poblano pepper come together to make your next meal unforgettable.

Serves 12 | 360 calories per serving | 21g protein per serving | Total cook time: 35 minutes

  • ¼ tsp. chipotle powder, optional
  • 18 corn tortillas
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3 cups Cache Valley® Finely Shredded Four Cheese Mexican Shreds

Instructions:

  • PLACE oven rack 6 inches from the broiler and preheat broiler. Brush a cookie sheet lightly with oil. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • REMOVE and discard stems, seeds and pulp from pepper. Cut pepper in half lengthwise.
  • REMOVE paper husk from tomatillos and rinse them. Cut in half across the diameter. Place tomatillos and pepper cut side down on baking sheet and brush lightly with oil.

Macaroni and Cheese with jalapenos and bacon

Jalapeno and Bacon Loaded Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese with jalapenos and bacon

Not to be too cheesey but… anything is pastable with this Mac n’ Cheese recipe. Jalapenos, bacon and cheddar galore!

Ingredients:

½ lb. dried elbow pasta

Jalapenos (chopped)

Precooked bacon bits

¼ cup unsalted butter

¼ cup all-purpose flour

¾ cup whole milk

1 ¼ cups half and half

4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

¼ tbsp salt

¼ tbsp black pepper

Dash of paprika

Chives for garnishing

Instructions:

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking dish (or your choice of an oven safe dish) and set aside.

Heat a large pot of salted water until you reach a boil. Once boiling, add pasta. Cook 1-2 minutes less than the package directs to keep it al dente. Once cooked, drain and drizzle with oil to prevent noodles from sticking together.

While your pasta is cooking, start your cheese sauce mixture. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add flour and whisk until combined. Cook for about 1 minute, continually whisking.

Slowly add in about half of your milk and heavy cream mixture. Continue to whisk until smooth. Add the remainder of milk and half and half, whisking until smooth.

Continue cooking over medium heat. Keep whisking frequently and watch as mixture begins to thicken. Once it has reached a very thick consistency, it’s ready for the cheese.

Add in salt, pepper, and paprika with about 1 ½ cups your grated cheese. Stir until combined, then add in another 1 ½ cups of cheese. Stir until completely melted and smooth.

Take your mixture and cooked pasta noodles and combine in a large mixing bowl. Add in your chopped jalapenos and bacon bits (as much as you would like). Mix together.

Add half of your pasta mixture into your prepared oven dish and layer with more grated cheese. Pour over the rest of your pasta mixture, and finish it off with the remainder of your grated cheese.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and starts to turn a light golden brown.

Carefully remove once cooked and set aside. Add chopped up chives or fresh parsley and enjoy your fresh baked homemade loaded Mac n’ Cheese delight.

Cheese and Herb Garlic Bread Pull Apart

Cheese Bread Pull Apart

Cheese and Herb Garlic Bread Pull Apart

Here’s to the cheese bread recipe of your dreams. Pull apart this heavenly recipe and you’ll see things moving in slow motion. Easy to make, easy to love, and easy to share!

Ingredients:

1 large loaf of bread (unsliced)

1/2 cup butter

2 cloves of garlic (minced)

1 tbsp fresh oregano

1 tbsp fresh thyme

1 tbsp fresh parsley

2 cups mozzarella (shredded)

1/4 cup parmesan (grated)

Optional chili flakes for spice

Instructions:

To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Get a baking sheet and prep it with lined baking paper (parchment, aluminum foil, etc.)

Place your loaf of bread onto the pan or cutting board. Start by cutting a diagonal pattern with a serrated knife into the bread. Be sure to make your cuts all the way to the bottom, but without cutting through the base.

In a bowl, mix together butter, thyme, parsley, and oregano.

Using your fingers (or utensil), hold open the sliced sections of your bread and pour butter mixture liberally. The more butter, the better. Add chilli flakes here as well if desired.

Next comes the cheese. Start by stuffing placing the mozzarella into the bread cracks.

Cover your loaf with foil, and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. The foil will prevent your cheese from burning.

Once melted, remove the foil and sprinkle your parmesan cheese over the loaf.

Place loaf back in the oven for another 5 minutes, or until melted and golden brown.

Once cooked, add more fresh parsley for garnish and flavoring.

Plate, pull, enjoy!
