Historic Strips And Cheese Along The Bike-Walkway In Huntington Beach.

It’s practically Summer all year long in So Cal — Although it’s really Winter, today we couldn’t tell.  We all had Strips and Cheese from Zack’s or Jack’s in Huntington Beach, near Lifeguard Station #11.  Fixated on the Strips and Cheese, I forgot to check where I got them.  Similar and/or related food shacks along the HB bike and walk path have sold ’em for years. 

Today some went swimming, some rode bikes, played Frisbee and football, and others dug for sand crabs, but ALL had the HB Strips and Cheese for old time’s sake and a few others for the first time.  I first had them as a kid.  They’re unique in that the Cheese isn’t melted and the Sauce is mild and sweet — A good beach combination.  Hope they’re sold for another 50 years.

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

    Thanks, I had the strips back in the early 70’s and have always wondered if they still available in Huntington beach. I remember them as be warm, soft and yummy. I was 19 years old at the time and had driven from west central Illinois with a buddy. Great memories of HB

    This will get you close. 28oz. can of tomato puree, heat to a boil. Add some Pico-Pica Hot to taste, comes in a glass bottle, with seeds. Probably will needs less then 1/2 bottle. Most receipe’s are made with sugar, brown or white, or I use 1-2 Stevia, or Sweet-N-Low packets. Sweeten to taste. One may be enough.Salt to taste. Buy corn tortillas, cut into long strips. Boil in hot wesson oil completely submerged. Don’t over cook if you want soft. Don’t dry off unless you want crispy. Better served HOT! with schredded Mexican cheese. Reminder second batch the oil is hotter, and they will cook much faster.

    It’s sold at Dwights consession stand right next to the pier in HB. They sell by the pint and they make the sauce. The concession stands do not all have the same suppliers and the sauce is different. You can call them 1 714.536.8083 or I saw them on facebook.
    They are yummy and I’ve been trying to find out how to make the simple sauce for years.
    I’m from HB and still don’t know it ):

    I haven’t found the source of the sauce yet and will ask them next time I’m down there. We’ll see and will report back…

    Did you ever find out the source of the sauce? They can be bribed to give up the name of their supplier. I doubt they make their own…all HB strips with cheese have the same sauce.

    I don’t know how they make it or if it’s bottled. I’ll ask next time! 🙂

    I would love to have the recipe for this sauce! Do you happen to know how they make it? I know it is ketchup-based, but don’t know the spices used.
