Sara Graduated! My MILs request of me: Cheese Dip!

28 Dec

So, my sister-in-law, Sara, graduated college this semester with a degree in photography and a minor in History & Political Studies (random, I know, but very cool!). As in typical graduation fashion, a party was planned. I do not envy my mother-in-law for having to plan parties for their family. There are 45 people on one side of the family and about 30 on the other side… that’s not including friends, dates, etc. That’s a lot of people, especially for a WINTER party in St. Louis – it’s generally not warm enough for people to hang outside. Thankfully, for her, she loves planning parties. However, naturally with that many people she cannot be expected to make/purchase everything so she enlisted help from a few people, her favorite (ok, so only!) daughter-in-law included. I was surprised that she only wanted me to bring one thing but then again – a lot of people = a lot of help. If I hadn’t been sick the day before the party I would have made baklava, SILs current favorite, but I’ll just stick to the one thing my MIL is counting on: White Jalapeno Cheese Dip:

White Jalapeno Cheese Dip (it doesn’t get much simpler than this!)

(Sorry this picture is so bad, it’s not that easy to take a picture of a white cheese dip! At least I used a black crock-pot!)
Ingredients
1 lb. White American Cheese (Shredded or cubed)
1 c. half and half
3/4 c. jalapeno juice
(jalapeno slices to taste if desired)
Directions
– heat half and half to hot, not boiling
– add cheese and stir until melted and combined
– add jalapeno juice (and jalapeno slices if desired)
– keep warm on a hot plate or in crock-pot
* I ususally keep a small bowl with jalapeno slices out, rather than putting in the dip, so you can choose if you want them or not!)

    I made this yesterday for a snack and it was so good…I used Monterey Jack cheese and canned chopped chiles…so I used the juice and about half the peppers in the cheese mixture…turned out great with just the right “bite” to it! 🙂 Thanks!
