How to make cheese dip?


Hola!

I am a teacher in the People's Republic of China. I have eaten many wonderful foods here, and there are many cuisines here.

The Chinese do not like cheese. Oddly enough, they do not like corn chips either.

My question is, how does one make cheese dip? Like the stuff they served (or used to) in Mexican restaurants? I would like to make some because I miss it very much.

Anybody knows how to make it?

Senor

    Queso Blanco

    1 cup monterey jack cheese or asadero cheese or chihuahua cheese, shredded fine
    4 ounces green chilies
    1/4 cup half-and-half
    2 tablespoons onions, chopped fine
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 serrano pepper, chopped fine (optional)
    1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped fine (optional)
    1. Put all ingredients in a double boiler and heat on medium.
    2. Cook until melted and well blended, stirring occasionally.
    3. Serve with fresh tostadas or hot flour tortillas.

    I found this recipe on another website and one of the posted messages claimed that if the "specialty" cheeses are not available, that white American cheese can be substituted. (A friend in high school worked in the kitchen of the local Mexican restaurant, and said that they used American cheese for almost EVERYTHING!) It does have a nice melting quality.

    If you have a Western grocery you migt be able to find Ro-Tel tomatos and green chiles. Mix this with one lb of Velveeta cheese (cubed) and melt it in the micro.

    LOL - I was thinking the same thing - you'd have to have teeny tiny fingers

    The white one that I like to make is:
    2 8 oz. cream cheese
    1 lb. hot sausage-crumbled , fried and drained
    1 can Rotel

    Mix together and warm a minute or so in Microwave. Serve with tortilla chips.

    I use a package of spicy velveeta AND a package of cream cheese and a can of rotel and for kicks add the cooked, crumbled sausage. seasoned hamburger meat works well too.
