I made this in place of your standard rotel dip - a "fancy" rotel, if you will - the other weekend for a football party and IT WAS GREAT. I used high quality white cheddar and it was just fantastic - served with chips. A great way to have cheese dip that is actually made from cheese (and NOT a "food product.")
