    My version of what they serve at authentic Mexican restaurants. Simple to make in the microwave in 5-10 minutes. Only 3 ingredients! Perfect for a quick snack or to serve as a side.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/4 cups white American cheese, shredded (I buy a hunk at the grocery store deli and shred it myself)
    • 1/4 cup 2% low-fat milk or 1/4 cup whole milk
    • 1/2 tablespoon pickled jalapeno pepper, minced (the ones used for nachos, in a jar)
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons jalapeno juice, from the jalapenos above


    1. 1
      Add all ingredients (in order) in microwave safe dish. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds.
    2. 2
      Stir until smooth. If it seems too thin, keep stirring.
    3. 3
      Serve with flour tortillas or tortilla chips.
    4. 4
      For mild, leave out the jalapenos. IMPORTANT: Do not leave out the jalapeno LIQUID, that is what helps make the flavor.

      Mmmm...I changed the recipe up a little bit because I didn't have any jalapeno juice. I added spinach and tomatoes and some crushed red pepper. That gave it a kick. It is so good, too bad it's so fattening!!!

      I was really excited to try this, but it really had too much of an american cheese taste to me to pass for a mexican dip. I would probably try again with a different type of cheese as I really liked the jalapeno and jalapeno juice in the dip.
