Chips and Salsa are my go to snack. I thought I’d pump up my old time favorite with the addition of some cheese…Powdered Cheese. Outcome: Two Thumbs Up!
|I garnished with Honeyville’s Freeze Dried Green Onions.
That center piece is in fact an onion and not a wayward chip that fell from my mouth.
Just so you know…
1 cup HOT Water
1/2 cup Honeyville’s Powdered Cheese
1/2 cup Picante Sauce or Salsa
Blend together water and powdered cheese. Stir in Salsa. Best served warm. Refrigerate any remaining dip. Use within 2 days.
How easy-peasy is that? Now a couple of tips that I found useful. The cheese sauce will slightly thicken upon standing. I used hot water from my tap (like I couldn’t wash my hands in it hot) but I found that by the time I had blended everything and then stirred in the cold Salsa it became barely luke warm. I prefer the dip hotter, so I ended up microwaving the dip for a minute or two. You could easily make this ahead of time and put it in a crock pot to keep warm. This is a very mild dip so if you want it hotter (as in flavor not temperature) you could add some jalapenos or green chiles would be nice too.
