The flavor of this deep is very addictive! I served this Saturday night and we finished it off on Sunday. Mildly spicy, very cheesy. Will be making this again!

I only had mild salsa. I used a can of chopped jalapenos. I didn't have monterey jack cheese so I used asiago cheese and cheddar. It gave a strong taste to the dip which was great. Thanks Karen :) Made for Cookbook tag game
