I am always asked for this recipe. I use a little less jalapeno than the recipe calls for depending on the crowd I am serving.
Colby-Pepper Jack Cheese Dip
This colby-pepper jack cheese dip is made heartier by the addition of chopped cooked chicken. Chopped chipotle peppers, jalapeños, and chili powder add even more heat. Prepare up to a day ahead; cover and chill in an airtight container, and bake just before serving.
