This yummy white cheese dip is my go to at any Mexican restaurant. It’s so much better than that yellow stuff. So, I thought why not make it at home? Can’t be that hard!


  • 1/2 pound white american cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk maybe more if you want it thinner
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 4 oz can of green chiles (or freshly chopped of your own!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • cayenne pepper – a pinch


  1. Place cheese, milk, and butter in a sauce pan over low heat.
  2. Heat until melted – stirring frequently.
  3. Stir in the green chiles, cumin, garlic salt, and the cayenne pepper. Remember, it doesn’t take much cayenne. Or – just leave out the cayenne and double up on the green chile!
  4. Add more milk if you want it thinner.
  5. Serve immediately with chips, tortillas, and your favorite mexican dish. It’s fabulous on enchiladas!
