Mrs. Fields Jalapeno Cheese Dip

2 lbs. Velveeta -- cut in cubes
1 qt. mayonnaise
12 oz. can jalapeno peppers -- diced small
1 T. dried onion flakes
1/8 tsp. garlic -- minced, dried
cup water

In large bowl, cut Velveeta into large cubes.  
Add dried onion & garlic, water & all the juice from the jalapeno can.  

Melt slowly in microwave, stirring about every 3 minutes, until completely melted.
Add mayonnaise and diced peppers and stir until completely mixed.  
Heat again, stirring every 3 minutes until it's bubbling.

Serving  Ideas : Can be served hot or cold with chips, crackers or fresh vegetables.
Makes a great sauce over steamed vegetables, adds flavor to scrambled eggs,
sandwiches, burgers & baked potatoes.

NOTES:  Best if put into containers before cooled.

Be sure to use canned jalapenos as the bottled ones have a different type of brine.  
Use the carrots as well as the jalapenos in the can.  

Be sure to use dried onion & garlic as it is more "pure".  

Using fresh shortens the life and changes the flavor.  

Don't microwave it but about 3-4 minutes, stir, then microwave it again.  
I repeat this three or four times after adding all the ingredients.   

It's best to refrigerate, but can stay out a while if not in sun or heat.
