I made this amazing cheese dip to go with our Carne Asada Tacos. I also made some homemade tortillas for the tacos and for dipping. This is an easy dip that does not start off with a roux as the base. It's so good and addicting!
1 T canola oil
1/4 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
1 can mild Rotel tomatoes, drained
2 T pickled jalapenos, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups white American cheese (found in deli section)
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1/4-3/4 cup milk
3 T cilantro, chopped
Heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes. Add the Rotel tomatoes and jalapenos. Cook another 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and add the cheese with 1/4 cup of the milk. Stir until melted. Add more milk as needed to get sauce to the right consistency. Note: The cheese dip will thicken quickly as it cools, so start off a bit thinner. Turn off the heat and stir in the cilantro. Serve immediately with tortilla chips and flour tortillas. This can be reheated in the microwave as needed. Enjoy!
