I need a good cheese recommendation for this spicy chicken pasta dish.
 
Basically it's, chicken cooked with chipotle peppers pureed into heavy cream sauce.

Now I need to know what cheese to use??


Thanks.

I wouldn't want a sharp cheese with that so I'd use a blend of asiago, cheddar and, oh, gouda cheese.

not what you'd expect 09-05-2019 12:52 PM

I wonder if a nice Provolone would compliment that? I'd consider it.

Any fresh, full-fat cheese will be fine. Paneer or queso fresco would work.

No help from me.

If I read that recipe somewhere, my brain would shut down.

You've got a cream sauce, you don't need a cheese as well. A nice tomato, onion, basil and mozzerella salad on the side would be perfect though.

If you have the spice and flavor already, and just want the cheese "ambiance," mozzarella works fine. It melts well and blends with everything. Don't over-complicate it!

Velveeta?

I'd say bleu cheese or something like that, to balance the spice.

PS - Or Venezuelan beaver cheese, perhaps?
