Quick and easy cheese dip that is a family favorite. I often double the recipe and freeze half for later.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is perfect for your next game day or tailgating party. It can be kept warm by putting it in a Crock Pot on warm. We used a whole 4 oz can of jalapenos in this recipe, but you can always cut back on that if you prefer it not so hot. This is an easy to make dip everyone will enjoy.
