Jane Butel developed this developed this mild recipe for a "major" Mexican fast food chain. The blend of three cheeses and the evaporated milk make this extra creamy and flavorful. Keeps in freezer for six months and doubles as a great sauce for vegetables and eggs.

My family and friends love when this dip is brought to parties; we all love it! Its mild flavor with a little bit of a kick is just right for chips and any kind of cracker. It's even excellent after it has been frozen for a few weeks and reheated. Thanks, Roxygirl, for sharing!

I have the feeling I've tried this before because it distinctly reminded me of bland fast food instead of good authentic homemade queso. Maybe if I'd never been through a Tex-Mex drive-through I would have liked it more
