South American Cheese Sauce

South American Cheese Sauce created by Baby Kato

Don't be dissuaded because of the ingredient Velvetta. If there ever was a recipe made for it, this is it. Serve over baked potatoes, vegetables, fish, pasta or any which way your creative juices take you.

    I made this to use as a dip rather than a sauce and we really liked it. I didn't have any cream, so I used milk and used about half of what was called for in the recipe. We loved the the fresh, lite taste. It was a really nice change from our usual queso dip. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Really good! I didn't have the jalepeno or cilantro, so made do with what I had on hand. An easily adaptable recipe for what's in the fridge or pantry. I added red pepper flakes and some queso fresco. I'm having trouble NOT eating it :)

    I wasn't too sure about the Velveeta, but this was delicious! Made for ZWT7: Count Dracula and his Hot Bites.

    This was so good! I used it to spoon over boneless chicken breasts & then the rest as the sauce for enchiladas. Both uses were terrific and this recipe will be used again. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT7.
