  • clay bowl appropriate to cook at high temperatures
  • gas grill


  • 4 cups of grated Jack cheese from Real California Cheese
  • 2 poblano peppers roasted and cut in strips or juliennes
  • 1 serrano pepper cut in halves
  • 1 non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 bag corn chips or 4 warm tortillas


  • Spray non-stick cooking oil to your clay bowl; this will allow the cheese not to stick on the bottom.
  • Then add 2 cups of the grated cheese in each bowl and top with poblano strips and serrano chiles cut in halves.
  • Turn on your grill let it get to 400 degrees, place the bowl and close the grill for 5-7 minutes.
