Capirotada - Mexican Bread Pudding
Cut 1 loaf raisin bread into cubes and dry in 250F oven until crusty. Rinse 1 cup raisins in hot water, then drain.
In a large buttered baking dish, continuously layer the bread cubes, raisins, walnuts, Monterey Jack cheese, and longhorn cheese (cheddar-jack) until all ingredients are used.
Spoon the hot syrup evenly over the bread mixture.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold.
