This was a great tasting dip but came out a little thick. Of course that may be because I substituted Cheddar Jack and some Mozarella for the pure Monterey Jack. I also highly recommend having a warming dish for this as it set up quickly making it difficult to dip. This dip tastes great and I am sure I will make it again! Read More

With this recipe it was important to keep the cheese warm as it would harden very quickly. Read More

An AMAZING dip. Will definitely make it again. If you have a fondue dish or chafing dish use it! Gets hard to manage when it cools off. Read More

Hit the spot for sure! I made this for a football game last year and it was devoured before the second half. I am going to make this again for my Oktoberfest next week. I make my own pita chips for it also. Just slice up some pita bread and toast it up it's really easy and good. Read More

Good recipe but it did need something to make it less gooey. A little sour cream and it was perfect. Read More

this is great served with cubed beer bread. i highly suggest adding about 1/4 cup chopped sauteed onion - just what it needed to give it that 5th star. Read More

Awesome recipe everybody loved it. I have made it many times without cilantro and extra beer. Once the cheese has thickened in pot you can add more beer to desired taste/consistency. But you definitely need a warming dish like a mini crockpot or fondue dish because it thickens when it cools Read More
