Exciting things are happening around here – I just signed up for triathlon #2! It’s this Sunday (a little last minute eh?).
I wanted to squeeze in one last race before the end of the racing season here. Typically May-August we have almost no races in the Phoenix area due to extreme heat. I know that I want to do an Olympic distance triathlon in the fall, so I wanted to tackle another sprint distance before then.
I’m not going to lie, I am a bit terrified of the whole open water swim thing – plus Tempe Town Lake is a little grody. And I am crossing my fingers that the 103 degree forecast isn’t too brutal…
Queso is Spanish for cheese (just in case you didn’t know!) but its also know around these parts as delicious. We are big fans of cheese in this house – so a spicy cheesy dip is just our style. This one is creamy and a tad spicy, but most of all, it’s perfect for dipping.
Once you see how easy this dip is to make, I guarantee there will be no stopping you. No cooking skills required for this one guys! If you have 5 minutes and a microwave you’ll be able to handle it. I promise.
You’ll be wowing people with your homemade cheese dip making skills – don’t worry, I won’t tell them that it was a cinch to make That’ll be our secret.
- -You can typically find white American cheese at the deli counter of your grocery store.
- -The dip will appear quite runny during the first couple of times you stir it – that’s normal. It will thicken as it cooks.
- -Store the leftover dip in the fridge. To reheat in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until it is hot and creamy.
- 1¼ (1.25) lb block White American Cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
- ¼ cup diced green chiles
- 2 pickled jalapenos, diced
- 1 ounce pickled jalapeno juice
- ⅔ cup whole milk
- ½ cup cold water
- pinch of cumin
- Toss all ingredients into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir after every minute. Once all cheese has melted and all ingredients have been incorporated, let cool slightly before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
