How to Make Cheese Dip
PRO TIP: When we’re hosting the crew for game day, I’ve put this in a slow cooker for the day to help keep it warm. Just set your slow cooker to “low” or “keep warm” and it’s ready for guests to scoop out on to their plates at a moment’s notice.
STEP ONE: Start by cutting the cheese into cubes and place in a microwave safe bowl.
STEP TWO: Pour in tomatoes and green chiles (with juices)
STEP THREE: Microwave on high in 1 minute intervals until it’s melted, stirring in between.
Serve warm with tortilla chips, cheese puffs, pretzels or any other dipping friendly ingredient you love.
