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
¼ 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.
