1/2 14.5-oz. can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 8-oz. packages shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeños
1/3 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper


Prep: 7 Minutes
Cook: 7 Minutes

1. Combine tomatoes and cumin in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Add cheese a handful at a time, stirring, just until melted, about 2 minutes.

2. Stir in jalapeños and milk. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is well combined, 2 to 4 minutes. Don't overheat; cheese will seize and become clumpy.

3. Stir in cilantro; season with salt and pepper. Keep dip warm in a slow cooker set on low or a pan over very low heat, stirring occasionally. Serve with tortilla chips, if desired.
