Great recipe! I made this for New Year's Day to serve with nachos while we watched movies. At first my teenage boys looked at it and said it's not orange-it can't be nacho dip. After coaxing to try it they said-colour doesn't matter, Mom when can you make this again! Easy to make and keeps warm over low heat on the stove for refilling the nacho bowl.
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- black pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups canned diced tomatoes (undrained)
- 1⁄4 cup canned green chili pepper, finely minced
- Tabasco sauce (to taste)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- 3⁄4 cup grated cheddar cheese
