That yummy white cheese dip served in Texas restaurants with lots of fresh, salty tortilla chips. A dear friend asked me to find THE recipe that she loves so much. After much work she finally says I have got it right! Whew! Hope you enjoy!

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.
