    I am wanting to make a hot cheese dip, very much like a queso dip, but do NOT want to use Velveeta. The dip will be served at a bridal shower, with about 30-40 people in attendance. It will most likely be served in a Crock Pot. The local HEB suggested using an Asadero cheese, but the results were less than favorable because it didn't melt down enough to add sauteed veggies and couldn't be dipped using a chip. Can you suggest a cheese which would melt down very thin or which could be thinned with possibly heavy cream, and to which I could add sauteed onions, garlic, tomatoes, and jalapenos? A recipe for a TRUE queso dip would also be welcomed.
