Real Mexican Cheese Dip

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Wende

I got this recipe off the internet after searching and searching, I kept coming up with only the cheese dip that contains rotel, velveeta and sausage or hamburger meat. I was looking for the real mexican cheese dip like they serve in resturants here in Oklahoma. I think I finally found it!

I, too, am from Oklahoma and I love my queso. Velveeta doesn't cut it. I added some milk to smoothen the mixture. I also like more spice to my queso, so I added cayenne pepper and cumin. Very good. Thanks, Wende!
