Colby-Pepper Jack Cheese Dip

    I hesitated to give this even three stars, but is definitely a "good, solid recipe." I followed it to a tee and it was good when it was hot, just out of the oven, but if you let it cool down even a tad, the consistency turned too thick/hard that my blue corn chips would break as the creamy, cheesiness turned solid. Maybe the key is to keep it warm throughout serving. Tried to serve this as something to snack on throughout the super bowl, but had to keep reheating it. This is almost exactly like the filling I use for an enchilada casserole, which I would recommend as an alternative use.

    This dip was the hit of our super bowl party! A keeper for sure!

    OUTstanding appetizer dip. Use the leftover chipotle peppers in the Chipotle Barbeque Meatballs. Both are simple, yet elegant appetizers which will be the star attractions at your next party or holiday function.

    I really loved this recipe. I served it for Thanksgiving and it was gone in no time. I plan to make it again for my husband's bowl party. It is really good with the sweet potato chips, but I also used the blue corn chips.

    LOVE this baked dip! A tad spicy, so I just use a LITTLE less peppers. Everyone always asks for the recipe. I always make it a day ahead and bake it when I need it the next day. Very good leftover, too!

    I followed this recipe exactly and served it at a party. It just isn't very good and no one thought so (but edible). I like spicey foods too; this just tasted strange and was a disappointment.

    This dip was loved by a very palate diverse and hard to please all crowd.... my family, so needless to say I was thrilled when it got rave reviews from all! It makes a great football watching dip, and also appropriate for parties and get togethers. Was still great even though I did not have the green onions, would probably be even better!! A definite keeper!

    I have made this dip several times, and it is always a crowd-pleaser. I couldn't find chipotle in adobo at my grocery store, so I substituted enchilada sauce. It doesn't have the same flavor or kick as the chipotle in adobo, but the dip is still delicious. I have made it with and without chicken, and both versions turned out fine. This is a great appetizer!

    I made this dip for our monthly Supper Club and it was a hit! Everyone loved it and no one thought it was too spicy, it had just the right amount of kick! This is a real keeper!

    Have made this in the past, but then tried substituting browned Mexican chorizo sausage for the chicken. Great flavor profile and it was devoured quickly. To keep the dip loose ( not firm and coagulated as the cheeses cool), I serve with either sterno candle below it to warm the serving dish, or serve in the crock pot on low . We've even used this for weekend movie night dinner/snack at home.

    I served this to by couples bridge club and they loved it. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe and I will use it time and time again.

    Delicious! You can vary the amount of spice depending on the company.

    I love this recipe! I make it to take to pot luck dinners and the guests devour it! It is simple to make and the ingredients are easy to have on hand or find in my local store. I have even had requests to make it for other parties. Great Appetizer!

    LOVED it! And super easy to increase (or decrease) the heat. Made it for Sunday Funday Football and the boys couldn't get enough of it. Def a keeper! :-)

    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.

    I love this..something a little different, that most people haven't tried before. I've made it the night before and then just baked before serving.
