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.

How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.
