Ingredients

  • 100g mature cheddar , grated
  • 50g red leicester , grated
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 300ml whipping cream
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
  • a few drops smoky Tabasco sauce
  • 6rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 200g plain tortilla chips
  • 3 spring onions , finely sliced
  • 1 jalapeno chilli , sliced (optional)
  • handful coriander leaves
  • soured cream , to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Stir the cheeses, cornflour, cream and 1 tbsp maple syrup in a saucepan over a low heat. Continue stirring – it may split or look lumpy but will eventually come together. Season with the Tabasco and a little more maple syrup to taste. Keep warm to prevent it setting quickly.

  • STEP 2

    Grill the bacon until very crisp, and warm the tortilla chips on the shelf below in the oven. Heap the chips onto a platter and pour over the cheese sauce. Break the bacon into small pieces and sprinkle over, followed by the spring onions, jalapeño (if using) and coriander.
