    Velveeta

    On the way to Albuquerque, my wife and I stop at a great Mexican restaurant in Cuba NM called El Bruno's every chance we get. It's a fixture for the area and the food has always been great. The original restaurant was there in a historical adobe building for decades until it caved in one Winter. Since then they've moved across the street into what was a Tastee Freez and added on in a very authentic-appearing Old Mexico style, with outside verandas warmed by chimineas, vega and latilla construction, the works.

    This last trip however, I ordered a dish I hadn't ever before: the seafood enchiladas. The menu advertised this as shrimp and crab meat wrapped in a corn tortilla and covered with a cheese sauce. When it arrived it looked great with a side of beans and rice, garnish and a healthy portion. I bit in and met with the unmistakeable plastic-like texture and flavor of a popular processed cheese-like food product. Velveeta? Really?

    It left me wondering if this was a local delicacy, like SPAM in Hawaii for example...or did they just run out of cheese, thinking on their feet rushed over to the bait shop, and henceforth save the evening?

    Please, share your thoughts on Velveeta.

    I just recently bought some velveeta to make cheesy beefy burritos. There were quite good, I added some red pepper to the meat for heat and of course regular taco seasonings. They were better than Taco Bells.

    Wasn't SPAM a commodity issued to the locals in Hawaii from the federal govt back in the day?

    Straight, blech but if used correctly in a recipe it can be rather good.

    I wonder if there is something you can add to it to keep it from solidifying(sp?) as soon as it cools to luke warm?

    I like it melted down in a cooker with a bottle or two of picante sauce. You do have to keep it in the cooker while serving or as stated above, it solidifies.

    Velveeta with Rotel Tomatoes is the classic Queso here in TX. There's a comedy club here in town called The Velveete Room and a very well known band called Rotel and The Hot Tomatoes. We are a sophisticated bunch here in Texas.

    This explains much.

    Next month in Austin, I'll be sure to request, "No plastic please".

    Commercial cheese sauce or nacho cheese sauce, the type that comes in a Number 10 can, and is used in institutional food service, has this same texture. I wonder if that was it.

    It did have that sort of down home, prison-foodish texture.

    It's even more frightening to think that a master chef, in an effort to please the local population's palate, made it all from scratch to taste specifically like that.

    I've had this recipe, too. I think it was one of the Kraft 'Superbowl Party' recipes years back.
