Mexican Restaurant-Style Cheese Dip

July 5, 2011 at 10:04 pm (Nom noms (Recipes))

You guys may not believe me when I tell you this secret…
How do I know it’s a secret? Because one of the waiters at an unnamed Mexican Cantina told me it was.
Okay, it probably isn’t a secret but I like to think it is.
Please make this dip, then invite me over. I’ll bring the chips.

Mexican Cheese Dip

16 oz White American Cheese (Land O Lakes preferred. You can find it in your grocer’s deli)
1/2 cup milk
1 can green chilis (or do what I did – chop up some pickled jalapenos!)
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt

Place cheese, milk and chilis in a sauce pan, heat on medium heat until thoroughly melted. Add cumin and salt. Add more milk depending on how thick you like your dip.
Transfer to a festive bowl (or margarita glass) and serve warm!

That’s it! So simple even my sister could do it. (I love you Katelyn…you can make me a grilled cheese later)

Notes: The chips we have were already pretty salty so I halved the salt.
