    Queso dip

    This is my original recipe for queso that I put together after researching the web. It is always a hit with the guys. Get the white American cheese if you can. It avoids people thinking this is the simple and over-served Velveta dip. It will taste like queso you would get at a Mexican restaurant.


    Cheese selection:
    Real American Cheese--the label must read "pasteurized processed American cheese"; avoid "cheese food" or "cheese product" items that look like American cheese. Usually the real cheese is the under the deli counter (where you can get white American--the preferred type) or in the "Deli Deluxe" packages in the regular cheese section.

    Ingredients
    ~1/8 cup very finally diced white onion
    2 cloves garlic, finely crushed and minced
    1 teaspoon Badia fajita season
    2-3 jalapenos, fire roasted, then seeded and diced in small pieces
    ~3 tablespoons butter
    Milk (amount varies, but ~1/4 cup to start)
    1 pound cheese

    In a heavy pot over low heat, cook onions and jalapenos until onions are near clear using about half of the butter. Add garlic and fajita seasoning. Add remaining butter along with the cheese (slices separated) and 1/4 cup milk. Stir gently to mix the cheese, butter and milk to have even heating. Stir gently until the cheese starts to melt. Add about 1/4 cup more milk and continue stirring. Once cheese melts, the cheese sauce should be thin. More milk (and or butter) can be safely added to further thin the sauce.

    Be careful to not scorch the bottom. You can transfer the cheese sauce to a crock pot over low heat to keep it warm. Stir on occasion. Depending on the cheese you pick, the cheese strong may be strong. You can tone it down by adding a little sour cream or more milk / butter.

    Serve over chips as nachos or as a dip for chips. If by chance you don't eat it all, it reheats and tastes better the second day.

    Pringles. They stack nicely and you can eat them without taking your eyes off the guy you're betting against.

    Otherwise anything but chicken wings and BBQ sauce.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.
