This wasn't bad, but it didn't have as much cheese taste as I like to have. Made for the Epicurean Queens ZWT5: Family Picks.

This is great :) I used can diced chilies but another time I'll try with jalapeno. I didn't have heavy cream, so I used whole milk and added a little bit of low-fat cream cheese to give more texture and thickness. I used white cheddar cheese (low-fat). It was really good. I'll do it again :) Thanks Heydarl :) Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5

YUMMY! This is a keeper for sure. The only thing I did differently is I roasted my red bell peppers first, which brought out some sweetness in them. I think next time I make it I will try Chef*Lee's suggestion of adding some well-drained Ro-Tel. Made for ZWT5 '09 for a fellow Hell's Kitchen Angels team mate. Thanks Heydarl!

Oh, goodness, so many of my favourite things in one recipe. Cheese, cream, red peppers... I made this for a drinks and nibbles evening I had with some friends and this went down a treat. I used a lovely local cheddar and a fresh chili pepper and served it with home made tortilla chips, crudites and fresh bread. So yummy and so decadent. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing - made for ZWT5.

Heydarl,,,Absolutely phenomenal!!!!!!!!! 100 stars!!!! I am so thrilled with this recipe!!!!! I love that this dip has some oomph to it, lots of chunky onion and green chile in each bite. I diced my onions very very small and I think that is really a key thing to do and I salted and peppered them after they had cooked down a little bit. I used most of the can of a drained 7 ounce size of green chiles because I love green chiles! I tempered the cream a little at a time into the mixture to keep it from curdling. I used the longhorn cheddar and it melted up just wonderfully!!! I think this is a wonderful base recipe for cheese dip, I could see adding a well-drained can of Ro-tel tomatoes for some spicy tomatoes and red color to go with the green!! Or even a type of sausage!!! I also love that this doesn't make a huge vat of dip, just the right amount to get about 4 people a good amount of appetizer!! I am not a big fan of Velveeta or any processed ingredients so this recipe really is wonderful to me!!!! Thank you so much for starting my New Year's 2009 party off with a bang!!!! UPDATE: I made another batch this time using 2 very well drained (10oz) cans Ro-tel original. I put one can Ro-tel in with a little oil in place of the onions to get the heat going so the cheese would melt. I let them heat up then I added my other can and tempered the cream into that. Added my cheese and it turned out wonderfully!! Five-hundred times better than yucky Velveeta and faster and easier too!!! Thanks for a real winning recipe!!!

This was surprisingly different. We enjoyed it on top of tamales. I used diced poblano instead of green chilies, and it was still good!

The basics of this recipe is great, it makes a very creamy queso but for our taste it definitely needs more heat. Next time I will add a couple of jalapeno's in addition to the peppers the recipes already calls for. Of course we are in Texas and that maybe just our tastes. Thanks for sharing!!

This made a yummy dip! I browned the onions a little too much, but it didn't matter. Thanks! Made by a fellow floozie for ZWT3!

So creamy and good. I did kick it up with a jalapeno added with the can chilies. This would be great on tacos, in a wrap or on burgers Thanks!
