Cheese Wiz: Jumpin' Goat's Sunset Chipotle Cheddar


November 6 2009, 6:52 AM
The latest offering to show up on my cheese board is the Sunset Chipotle Cheddar from Buena Vista's Jumpin' Good Goat Dairy. Made from goat's milk, this hard cheese has a streak of russet-red chipotle paste running through the middle. Each bite melds nutty cheddar with smoky, spicy chili pepper. (Tip: The closer you get to the chipotle, the spicier the bite.) I like to serve this robust cheese on Nita Crisps and offset it with the creamy Buttercup cheese (made from goat and cow's milk) from Haystack Mountain Goat Dairy. I found both at Marczyk Fine Foods in Uptown. 770 E. 17th Ave., 303-894-9499
