We asked chefs from around the country to submit creations for bold and brilliant ways to use Land O Lakes® Extra Melt® White Cheese Sauce.
With over 100 submissions, there was no shortage of unique creations and original concepts. From cheesy corn dips to lobster bisque, this competition has inspired us to think about new and exciting ways to use our Performance Dairy sauces.

The first runner-up is Chef Brad Prose, @chilesandsmoke, with his take on Quesabirria Totchos. Smoked beef birria, Land O Lakes® Extra Melt® White Cheese Sauce with homemade barbacoa rub, fried tater tots, xnipec and smoked pickled jalapeños.
