Queso  is on the menu at just about every Tex-Mex joint here in the Lone Star State, and no wonder: warm, gooey cheese, typically with a hot pepper kick and plethora of chips alongside, it’s pure comfort food, fitting for casual celebrations of all kinds (especially the workday-is-over-and-it’s-Friday-night variety).

However, it’s probably not the best option before a long run. And I imagine that eating it while riding a bike could be tricky.

So I came up with these.

They deliver big-time on the cheese flavor, have an addictive accent of heat and smokiness from the chipotle chile powder, and you can bake them off at your convenience.

And the texture of these vegan chipotle cheese bread bites? Tender and bread-like around the edges, but–I kid you not–melted cheese-like towards the middle.

Chipotle cheese bread bites are great on the go, and taste delicious hot, warm or cold. They make a great snack (high fiber, 4 grams of protein, low sugar, high fiber) or pair two or three with soup or salad for a great lunch or dinner.

Power food and comfort food in one handheld, portable snack. This is my kind of eating; I hope it is yours, too!
