    Very good and easy. I used Kraft’s Deli Deluxe white American cheese and used diced jalapeno’s because mo’ heat is mo’ better.

    This was fabulous. I doubled the recipe for a larger gathering and changed one thing. Because so many people reviewed this as being bland and because I like spicy food, I used 2 cans diced green chilies and 1 1/2 cans diced hot jalepenos (remember I doubled the recipe). This was not so spicy that kids couldn’t eat it or others who don’t care for spicy wouldn’t eat it but it had just the right kick. Thanks for sharing this fab recipe.

    We loved this! I threw all three ingredients in a small crockpot for 1 hour on high and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing!

    Love this! Exactly what is served at a popular mexican restaurant here in my area. Great over spanish/mexican rice also.

    Just a note to those who couldn’t locate the Land o’ Lakes brand of white american–any white american cheese sold at your deli counter will work. Same place you buy fresh sliced lunch meat. American cheese melts better than cheddars and jacks which can get oily, stringy and grainy. You can make it using cheddars but then you really need to stand by and stir often and keep and eye on it. Cheddars are also stronger in flavor which will change the end result of this dip’s taste.

    This is exactly how my husband likes his cheese dip. I used one can green chiles and one of jalapenos to make it spicy. Definitely use more cream than you think so it’ll stay liquidy/saucy for a bit longer. It’s awesome on french fries, too 😀

    This dip was the best!!! I tweaked it a little to make it spicy for our taste and added about 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of juice from regular jarred jalapenos (not pickled) and mixed that into the dip Wowza thanks for this recipe. Oh PS I froze leftovers in a freezer bag after being heated and it held up perfectly maybe even better the 2nd time around!

    Great recipe. Super easy. I added 1/4 pound chorizo and some jalapenos to mine to give it a kick!

    I have begged the place where I eat mexican food to give me recipe for the queso blanco and she wouldn’t do it, after making your recipe we ate there again and I was bragging about finding the recipe for it..she smiled and said “So you found the secret was to add a touch of chicken boullion and cumin with the hot green chilies” …well I had been using mild chili and didn’t have the cumin or chicken boullion. It is wonderful the way it is written but I’m telling ya it just gets better with these additions..making sure to use enough cream not to get dip too thick. Wonderful recipe ..thanks so much for posting!!!
