American cheese, cut into pieces
3 1/4 cups
minced green bell pepper
finely minced jalapeno pepper, seeds and veins removed
This truly does taste just like a favorite restaurant's recipe that I have been trying to duplicate for years. I'm embarrassed that is was so easy and I couldn't nail it! I cut the recipe in 1/2 since it was just a side dish for 4 - wished I would have made the full recipe!
Authentic and yummy! I wouldn't call it "hot" though. For those who like it hot my "cheater" version is easy - simply add a few tbsp of med. salsa to the cheese of your choice ( I use Velvetta + sour cream)a can of sliced jalepenos (don't remove seeds!)and a squirt of real lime juice. We also like sliced olives - hot and chunky!
this was a good recipe but i used white american cheese a lot creamier
I made this for a party and it was a big hit! It tastes sooo good and is very addicting! It makes A LOT of dip, though. Tastes good re-heated the next day....and the next...
This was very good and easy. I do not have a double boiler, so I just melted the heat the regular way over the stove in a pot. I also added a good bit of ground cayenne (red) pepper to the dip. That added much more flavor and a little spice, but really wasn't very spicy. Needs a little more flavor somehow though.
This is so much better than the stuff from a jar. It's worth the effort to make!
Made according to the recipe, and was fairly disappointed. This is very bland and was overly thick. The amount of vegetables called for didn't really contribute anything. I did scale the recipe back serving-wise to use 1 lb of cheese, but proportionally, that shouldn't have mattered. I think this might be a good start, maybe add in some queso fresca or similar cheese.
I scaled down the recipe to 10 servings for our family of 4 for New Year's Eve.
I used a saucepan on low heat and it melted fine. The queso was a little bland for us, so I added 1/2 cup of medium salsa. Everyone enjoyed it!
