I just made this and it was so much better than it looks! I did alter the recipe a little bit though. I used Boars Head brand chipotle gouda rather than regular or smoked gouda. I also added some Tapitio (an amazing hot sauce found in the Mexican isle) to the paprika and cheese mixture. It gave it a little bit of a bite, but not so much that it was overpowering.
I will definitely make again!
