  • Combine all ingredients in either a microwaveable bowl or a pot for the stovetop, according to your cooking preference.
  • If using the microwave, heat for 1-2 minutes at a time on 50% power, stirring periodically, until heated through and cheese is melted (about 6-8 minutes).
  • If using the stovetop, heat over medium low, stirring frequently (about 6-8 minutes).
  • This pairs nicely with a variety of food, including bread chunks, crackers, pretzels, and the like!

    I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of this awesome recipe. After seeing diners photo I had to try it for our 4th of July party and so glad I did. Recieved rave reviews and everyone wanted more. It was so easy to make exactly as per directions and the flavors blended so well that I didn't (and wouldn't) change a thing. There was not a piece left. I'll just have to make again soon so I can get the photo.

    We loved this dip!! I made 1/4 of the recipe to have as a snack since we ate a late breakfast. We loved the flavor combination from the cheeses, onion and the texture of the crispy almonds. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT.

    This is such a wonderful spread! It is cheesy, thick, creamy and very addicitive! The onion and swiss go great with the spices and the almonds add the perfect crunch. I roughly chopped mine and sprinkled them on top.<br/>Everyone loved this dip and I will certainly make it again as it was also very easy to do.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great keeper with us, starry!<br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #35 June 2011.

    This is EXCELLENT. Loved the ooey-gooey cheese. The horseradish gave it just the right amount of zip and the almonds is a nice touch. Can't wait to make this again, Starrynews.

    Great creamy dip! Made last night for the Super Bowl! However, by the time I remembered to take photos we had devoured it! Instead of using straight horseradish I used creamy horseradish and it worked out perfectly for our tastes. *Next Day: I made a small batch so I could take some photos! Made for the Potluck Tag Game!
