Yes, it does sound and look very good. I'll have your Habanero and one for me too! The cheese will mellow out the pepper.

This looks lovely :)

Since I am from Australia, I was wondering if anyone knew what cheese I could use as a substitute for Veleeta as I have not heard of that cheese?

Cheers

Can you get Cheez Whiz? It comes in a jar, not quite the same.

Kraft American Cheese is also somewhat similar.

You may be able to find Velveeta somewhere on the shelves, until it's opened (yellow cardboard box, enclosing a foil wrapper), it doesn't need refrigeration. There are Velveeta lovers and haters here, you will discover!
