"This is the best queso dip! Being from Texas, I know my queso, and I think this is the one that beats them all! It's full of flavor and all fresh ingredients. You can substitute half-and-half for the heavy whipping cream, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

poblano peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
Anaheim peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
fresh jalapeno pepper, halved lengthwise and seeded
processed cheese food (such as Velveeta ®), cut into cubes
roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
white onion, diced
heavy whipping cream
I made exactly as written (substituted half and half for the heavy whipping cream as recipe submitter mentioned) and this turned out better than any cheese dip I have ever made with Velveeta. The roasted peppers is what sets this one apart from other cheese dips so I recommend not skipping this step. I think any combo of hot peppers you prefer or had on hand would work just fine. This one is a keeper and one I will make often during football season!
The roasted peppers and the onions made this irresistibly tasty! I sauteed my onions out of personal preference. Followed the directions about the roasted peppers, but the skins didn't peel off easily. However, I pulled off as much skin as possible (only about 1/4 came off each pepper), then chopped finely and the remaining skin was not noticed nor a factor in the dip. I cheated a little and instead of dicing the tomatoes, just added 1 can of Rotel Mild tomatoes and chilies. Used FF half and half, too. The dip was very mild - really no kick, but wonderful flavor. So you could add some hot sauce or more jalapenos to boost the heat.My guests and I could not get enough of this delicious dip. Along with the other reviewers, I'll use this queso recipe whenever I want to impress guests. My son prefers the simpler version (Velveeta and Rotel only). Thanks for sharing this recipe Shrimpbait.
Nice, tasty and quick to assemble recipe. I will probably add less cumin in the next batch, but still quite nice all around. Followed the original recipe 100% the first time, make changes later as needed.
This was great recipe. However next time I will leave the seeds in the jalapeno. Very mild. Will for sure make again. My kids loved it.
