Wow, this is a great cheese sauce! Hubby and kids went googly eyed over it! I also used ap flour and didn't have fresh cilantro so used dehydrated. Will make a double batch next time as this will be used as more than dip! Thanks BBCFAN! Made for 2009 fall PAC.

This is so good. I used a jalapeno that I roasted on the bbq. (I did half the recipe). I used all purpose flour. And I omitted the cilantro leaves. I'll do it again. It's so easy. Thanks BBCFan :) Made for Newest Zaar tag
