a few things about green chile cheese fudge

I’ve been making this recipe for many years. The original recipe was for jalapeno cheese fudge, so the first time I made it I went strictly by the recipe. But I don’t really like spicy food, so the next time, I altered the recipe to include green chilies instead.
I have also seen similar recipes referred to as “mexican fudge”.
So, if you prefer a hotter flavor, you could certainly add jalapenos.
Also, the recipe called for particular kinds of cheeses, but I use whatever I have on hand.
And if I don’t have enough and I need to buy more cheese, I typically use a mixture of mild cheddar and colby jack.
You could certainly use a mexican blend cheese, or a mixture of cheddar, if you prefer. Experimenting is part of the fun of a new recipe, right??
It is delicious by itself or you can serve with tortilla chips.
ingredients for green chili cheese fudge
6 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese

directions for green chili cheese fudge
Spread the 2 cans of diced green chiles across the bottom of 9×13 baking dish.

Cover lightly with a piece of aluminum foil during the last 15- 20 minutes to avoid the top getting too brown.
Cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting into small squares.
