I am from North Little Rock and grew up eating this cheese dip from the original Mexico Chiquito restaurant and I have made this cheese dip often. You have to use Kraft REAL American cheese in the small blue box, NOT kraft sandwich slices. Trust me, it's a huge difference. Plus there are several other ingredients missing from this recipe.

#1 Butter not margine bought a half a stick. #2 eeds cumin powder also. #3 four four tbl spoons flour and 2 cups milk use 4 lbs cheese. 1/2 cup milk and 1 tbl spoon flour will work. #3 you can't get the cheese that Chiquito uses. It is american, but not velveta(there is a diffrence trust me. Plus chiquio uses a diffrent proscess with the flour, and many more ingrediants are used. I have spent years on this recipie and made both chiquito and this recipie. Good Luck
