No Velveeta here! Found this in Food and Wine's Best of the Best recipes. I usually make my [recipe=345329] College Girl's Best Queso Ever[/recipe] but this one sounds good too! Rick Bayless is super awesome.

This was different. I had some home grown tomatoes that worked well here. I only made half the recipe for the 2 of us so used 2 small tomatoes, about a quarter of a large onion and 2 small jalapenos. I think garlic would have been a good addition to this. After it cooled it became very hard (could have been because I added just a little mexican blend cheese that I needed to use) along with the Monterey Jack. A nice change. Thanks Made for PAC Fall 09 :)
