    Heated with a jar of salsa or some chili, for tortilla chip dip.

    •  I just bought a block of Velveeta today. (4+ / 0-)

      I love good, "real" cheese.  I have several in the fridge currently, which we got for Christmas gifts.  But we have friends coming for New Year's, and ever since we met them back when we all lived in Albuquerque, they have loved my queso.  It's very non-gourmet stuff; melt the Velveeta in your crock pot, add a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes with green chile, and then more green chile to taste.  You can throw in some onions or garlic if you want, and maybe a little milk if it's getting too thick.  Serve with tortilla chips, or on a hamburger, or just eat it with a spoon. Yum!

      These friends, who are semi-retired, just spent the past summer renting an apartment in downtown Madison, which they loved.  So I'm sure they ate plenty of that excellent Wisconsin cheese!

      •  Reminds me of another great use for fake cheese (0+ / 0-)

        Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches. Oh, I know you can put provolone on them, but cheez whiz is perfect for it.

        Americans can make our country better.
