Spicy Cheese Dip

Recipe by Samantha in Ut

This is great for parties. Everyone always asks for the recipe. If you shred your own cheese rather then buying it already shredded you will have a smoother consistency.

This was awesome, better than the mexican restaurants! I took Kittencal's advice and treated this like a fondue. I reduced the recipe by 2/3's, to make 2 cups, as there are only 2 of us. I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic and a jalapeno, chopped, in a pat of butter, before adding the cream. I spiced it up a bit, by adding a dried arbol chile pepper, some mexican chili powder, and a pinch of cumin. This came together quickly; thanks, Samantha in UT, I look forward to making this again. Made for ZWT 5.
