Utah cheddar rubbed with Hatch Chiles
This cheese is an expression of love for the landscape of the American Southwest; the rind is almost as stunning as a Canyonlands vista. Beautifully layered like Entrada Sandstone, the paste of Red Butte is tumbled with Hatch Chiles and complex flavors.
3% of gross sales are donated back to Red Butte Garden, our local botanical garden. To date, we've donated over $32,000 to the Garden.
What does it taste like?
Creamy and smoky with a proper balance of heat. The coriander in the rub on the rind gives Red Butte a mellow lemony undertone. The New Mexico Hatch Chiles in the paste provide depth and smokiness.

Trying to decide between the 4 oz, 12 oz, or quarter wheel?
The 4-oz cut is great for an intimate gathering. You can share this cut with four other people or hide it in your fridge and nibble away in secrecy. We won’t tell on you.
The 12-oz cut is our work horse. This one is for the for the entertainer or used in cooking. It’s enough cheese for a couple grilled cheese sammies or a party of 12-16 guests.
The 5 lb quarter wheel is perfect for large parties and weddings.
