Fiery Beef-n-Cheddar

Although I don’t eat fast food any more (or at least, it’s been years since I have), that doesn’t mean I don’t get a hankerin’ for it every now and then. Here lately I’ve been jonesin’ for a beef-n-cheddar sandwich from Arby’s, with a side of curly fries. But I wanted something a bit different than the great sandwich I can get at the fast-food chain. I wanted some kick. Some spice. And oh boy, did I get it! Presenting my Fiery Beef-n-Cheddar. Ooey gooey cheese with just the right amount of kick. Thin-sliced roast beef. And my version of Arby’s sauce, also with a punch of heat!
