Party time – Queso Fundido Cheese dip – rated HOT

Who doesn’t like something hot and spicy to get the party rolling? Andrea’s and my take on a great Mexican snack dish cannot be beat – it has the blazing hot molten appeal of sharp cheeses dangerously tinged with the bite of chipotle peppers (to taste!)…

Not only that, it is served right out of the oven so it has double-trouble heat – but seldom a complaint is heard as it disappears entirely before it cools.

It is very hot, thermally, when it comes out of the oven so be very, very careful with this dish – a scald hazard always exists!


Shred 2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese (the older and sharper the better)
Shred 1 cup Monterrey cheese
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 4 oz. can chopped green chili peppers (drained)
1 to 2 tablespoons of finely chopped, canned, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

Combine and mix in a large bowl.

Spread into 1 quart baking dish.

Baked in 375 oven for 20 – 25 minutes stirring once.

Remove from oven – stir again.

– garnish with chopped green onions,
tomatoes, and even some sliced black olives or cilantro if you are so inclined.

Serve immediately with Tortilla chips and the frosty Cerveza or two of your choosing
This is a wickedly satisfying dish at any party – just warn people in advance: It has the hot hot heat!
