  1. Prepare the bacon. Cook the bacon strips in a large frying pan over medium heat for 10-12 minutes until crispy. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate as you make prepare the rest of the grilled cheese.
  2. Melt several tablespoons of butter and coat one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle garlic powder, chili powder, and salt. Place butter side down in large pan over medium heat and cook for 2-3 minutes until browned. While the bread is toasting, brush the face up side with more melted butter and sprinkle with additional garlic powder, salt, and chili powder.
  3. Once browned, flip to toast the other side. Top with Tropical Queso Oaxaca, distributing it evenly on every sandwich. Add two slices of bacon per sandwich. Combine the two pieces of bread and continue cooking and flipping the grilled cheese until the cheese is melted and the bread is browned. Approximately 2-3 minutes.
  4. While the grilled cheese is cooking, mix up your chipotle crema. Mix a few tablespoons of Tropical Crema Mexicana with a few teaspoons of adobo sauce from the chipotle peppers. Add a little of the adobo sauce at a time, to taste. Note: It can get spicy quickly.

To serve, dip the Oaxaca grilled cheese in the chipotle crema and enjoy!
