what i made for monday- white queso dip

I know...I usually make sweet treats but this week I decided to take the day off.  Don't worry I have some tasty treats coming up...

But to not leave you completely in the lurch, I'll share this tasty dip that I found via Recipe for Crazy

YUMMY white queso dip! :) It was SO good!

Here is how I made it:
1/2 lb of white American cheese (I got it from the deli)
1/2c of water
1 heaping tablespoon of minced white onion
1 heaping tablespoon of green chiles in your preference of hotness. (Lesley used 1/2 tbl "pickled jalepenos" but the only option I could find for this was a jar that would take me YEARS to use and was almost $5.  The chiles came in a tiny can and cost much less).
I also added a dash of garlic power.  Just a smidge, but you could leave this out. 

In a double boiler (or a pyrex type bowl sitting on top of a pan of water) heat up water to simmering and melt cheese.  Stir consistently.  Once it is all melted give it a couple more minutes of flavor "gelling" time. :)

Eat with tortilla chips.  YUM!  It was so good!  Go! Make this!  Eat it for lunch all by itself, I say it's ok! :)

This is the second time in 12 hours that I've seen this recipe. Do you think that it's telling me something?

Oh, and chilis probably added a better flavor than jalapenos. They're richer when fire-roasted and I prefer them for all things SPICY, which we love since we've lived in AZ for a couple years.

mmmm - sounds rather addicting! I can picture this over a bit of refried beans too for a layered hot dip....oh now I'm in trouble! xo

is it wrong to have queso dip for breakfast?

My husband has been trying (somewhat unsuccessfully) to come up with a recipe for this. He'll be so excited!
