Directions

  1. DIVIDE the tortilla chips, Cabot Two State Farmers’ Shredded Cheddar Cheese, green chiles (to taste), salsa, and sliced black olives between the two foil sheets, layering and distributing the ingredients evenly. Leave 1″-2″ on the long sides of the foil and a 4″-5″ border on the short side of the foil.

  3. PLACE the foil packets on a grill, over a campfire, or in a skillet over a camp stove. Heat until the cheese melts.
  4. REMOVE from the heat, carefully open the packets, top with the avocado, jalapeno slices (if using), cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Then sit back and enjoy!
