This "dog food" dip recipe was given to me by a co-worker some 15 or more years ago. She made it for potlucks at work, and it was always gone from the nurse's station before the rest of the food was put out! It's a simple mixture of beef, cheese, and jalapeños but it should always be made a day in advance to allow the flavors to blend. Serve with your favorite corn chips.
