White Cheese Dip

Prep time 11 mins
Cook time 2 hrs, 2 mins
Yield 8 cups
Look for white American cheese in the deli department. We liked the extra spice contributed by 1 can of hot tomatoes--using 2 cans of regular tomatoes yields a much milder dip.

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (10-ounce) can hot diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pounds deli white American cheese, sliced (we tested with DiLusso)
  • 1 cup milk

How to Make It

  1. Place onion in a medium microwave-safe bowl; cover loosely with heavy-duty plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes. Stir garlic and next 5 ingredients into onion.

  2. Roughly tear cheese slices; place in a 4-quart slow cooker. Pour milk over cheese; add onion mixture. Cover and cook on LOW 2 hours. Stir gently to blend ingredients.

  3. Make Ahead: Spoon dip into serving-size freezer containers, and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Reheat in microwave on MEDIUM (50%) power.
