Spicy mac & cheese.

For the soup, first cube the potatoes, then cook in chicken broth until tender. Anywhere in there you can add any herbs and spices. Take off the heat, and let cool a bit (not cool, but maybe a bit above room temp). If you want it thicker, take a potato masher and mash some of the potatoes. Add the cheese, and put back on the heat (low) to warm, stirring.

If you like cheese on your broccoli or cauliflower, you could use the nacho cheese for that.

nacho cheesesteaks!

that's right. they're so good, if someone even looks at it you'll say, "hey, that's nacho cheesesteak!"
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Schnitzel/CFS topped with sauteed onions and peppers and the cheese.

Topping for Enchilada's, or even easier, for a plate of Taco meat and corn chips Nacho's.

I once or twice had a #10 can of nacho cheese. I portioned it and froze it. When it thawed and was warmed in the microwave, it was excellent, I'd do that again.

Maybe I'm late, but if there's any left:

Cheese Fries
Chili Cheese or "Animal Fries"
