I made half of this with a few changes: I used Chihuahua cheese instead of Jack and mild Cheddar because that's the only one I could get. Also, I used jalapenos for the chilies and added a little seasoning salt. For the tequila I used about two teaspoons (maybe more!) and it came out perfect. My DH doesn't like cheese dips and he gobbled this one up! Thank you Kelly! Made for Bevy Tag 7/09.

This was a pretty good dip. Quick to make and we loved the tequila flavor. I did only use half of the amount. We thought it was just a bit bland however. Not that the tequila overpowered the dish, just that the cheese and chili flavor wasn't strong enough. Might try again using more of a cheddar to jack ratio and using a spicer pepper. Thanks for sharing!

I'm a huge fan of Mexican cheese dips, but this did not work out quite as I had hoped. I made the recipe exactly as written, and I even used 2 tbsp of REALLY nice tequila, however all of us felt that the tequila flavor really overpowered the dip. Perhap 1 tbsp might have complimented the cheese, tomatoes and chilies a little bit better
