Inspired by the red rocks of the American Southwest, Red Butte Hatch Chile Promontory is a spicy take on the Beehive Cheese Co’s. signature cheddar. The interior of this cheese is studded with green New Mexico Hatch chiles, which provide a grassy, vegetal flavor with a slight piquant kick. The outside is rubbed in a spice blend, predominantly featuring red Hatch chiles, creating a vibrant and aromatic rind. The rub gives the cheese a spiced & earthy smokiness that helps balance the creamy flavors of the cheese. Also, you should feel good buying this cheese - 3% of all sales from this cheese are donated to the Red Butte Garden, a local botanical garden near the creamery. Great for snacking, shredding or melting!
