This dip is similar to white cheese sauces served in many Mexican restaurants. The amount of heat can be adjusted by adding your favorite chili pepper or crushed cayenne pepper to taste. As is, it is kid-friendly, quick, and delicious! It can be used as a dip for tortilla chips or a sauce for many Mexican dishes
1 pound white, deli-sliced American cheese
⅔ cup of milk or half-and-half
3-4 tablespoons of canned, chopped green chiles or jalapenos
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chipotle powder (optional)
If using a slow cooker, turn on to the lowest setting. Dump everything in, heat and stir until thickened.
If using a double boiler, heat the milk, chopped chiles and spices, then gradually add in the American cheese, 1-2 slices at a time, stirring until fully melted and incorporated together
