READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by evelynathens

Sometimes, long after the kids are in bed, I halve this recipe for hubby and myself, and we dip and eat in front of the TV. It's a great way to have dinner every so often.

DELICIOUS!! It had just the right amount of spices & peppers to give the dip a kick without making you run for a glass of milk. I used my homemade salsa & will strain it next time as I found the bottom layer had too much liquid. I would also leave the cheeses unmelted. Thanx Evelyn!
