Beat together the Cream Cheese, Tabasco Sauce and Salt.

Cut the Cheddar Cheese Slices in half.
On a 12" X 10" piece of foil place the first piece of Cheddar Cheese in the middle.
Cover this piece of cheese with 3 Tablespoons of the Cream Cheese mix.
Repeat for six more layers ending with a slice of Cheddar Cheese.
Pull the foil tightly up and around the cheese.
