      I tried this recipe and found that you can not use the Monterey Jack cheese, it does not melt correctly. I would highly recommend finding the Asadero or the Chihuahua cheese or even the Creama. I had to use more of the half and half to keep it thin.

      I made this as posted, and enjoyed the taste but not the texture of the recipe. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the dip to form and hold a "cheese dip" consistency. I'd get it all heated up and stirred together, but it would never totally combine. I used the exact ingredients listed (grated the monterey jack from a block), but this just didn't turn out. Like Tinkmommy, my cheese just sort of clumped up and became a solid again. I could choose cumin flavored half and half, or a chunk of cheese, but not a nice smooth cheese dip. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

      The taste of this was GREAT! However, the consistency was an issue. My cheese clumped up after cooking if I wasn't constantly stirring it.
