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

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. I 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. The Test Kitchen
