*Another option besides Velveeta is: 8 ounces cream cheese + 2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese. After cheeses are completely melted, stir in a few tablespoons of milk if necessary for consistency.
**I prefer canned jalapeños in this recipe, but if you use fresh jalapeños be aware that the seeds contain most of the heat. To keep them from being too hot, remove the seeds before slicing and dicing.
***This recipe can easily be doubled to feed a larger group.
