This has a hint of spiced cornbread yet sweet tasting. My boyfriend loves it. *Note* get caught without shredded cheese any flavor I grab 6 slices of cheese and get pizza cutter or knife and slice and dice until it is all tiny cubes then unwrap from plastic and put it in the bowl and mix. works excellent. My preference is 4 Slices Pepper Jack and 4 Slices Chipotle this way it is a mixed cheese (plain American is fine)
