Default Cheese measure, shredded vs whole

I was looking at a recipe for enchiladas at
http://seafood.allrecipes.com/az/Sfdnchilds.asp

Under ingredients it calls for 8 oz. Colby cheese. This is
the only cheese listed in the recipe. Later it says to add
one cup shredded cheese. Finally, it says to add remaining
cheese.

If 8 oz. cheese does not equal one cup shredded cheese, then
what is the ratio shredded/cheese?

Thanks in advance,

Don

8 oz. of cheese is the weight measurement. grated, that is about 2 cups.

Thanks, Sarah. That should be easy to remember.

The weight of the cheese is always half the volume. So if you want a
cup of cheese (8 ounces) you should buy 4 ounces of cheese by weight.
Two cups of cheese (16 ounces) would require a block of cheese weighing
8 ounces.

Got it. Simple and precise and easy to remember.

Thanks for the feedback,

Don
