The natural orange colouring in Cheddar comes from annatto.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and sauté the garlic, onion and pepper 3 to 5 min. Add the pineapple, lemon grass and rice. Salt and pepper. Add water and rum, bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the black beans, shrimp and tomatoes, and continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp are done.
Stir the rice well, season to taste and remove the lemon grass. Add the cheese, allow it to melt a little and serve immediately.
Suggestion: To enhance the flavour, sauted the shrimp in a little butter rather than adding them to the rice as it is cooking.
Note: You can prepare this dish in advance, but add the cheese just before serving.
Try it with Mozzarella, Provolone, Canadian Swiss, or other Cheddar, etc.
