Jalapeño Jack Cheese Dip

I can’t believe Christmas is only a few weeks away! Are you done with your holiday shopping? I kept things simple this year so I’m pretty much done. Now I’m just looking forward to taking some time off later this month and enjoying the company of my kids. We have a lot going on this upcoming year so I’m ready to recharge and get ready for the months ahead.

During the holiday season, we like to gather around the table with good food. As much as I enjoy cooking a hearty meal for my family, nothing beats a delicious cheese board that only takes minutes to put together. Last week, we had several days that called for cozy blankets, hot drinks, and comfort food. Instead of making a typical cheese and fruit board, I decided to make a warm Jalapeño Jack Cheese Dip with Heluva Good!® Cheese blocks that I picked up at my local Walmart while shopping for some groceries.

I stocked up on three of my favorite flavors; Jalapeño Jack Cheese, Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar, and Extra Sharp Cheddar. This cheese is so good y’all! I’m talking mouthwatering tasty cheese that’s perfect for entertaining, or truly any occasion. This cheese dip was super easy to put together, and today I’m sharing all the yummy details.

Jalapeño Jack Cheese Dip

Ingredients

Heluva Good! Cheese – Jalapeño Jack 8 ounce block (grated)
3/4 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon of cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon of onion powder
1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon of pepper

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add milk and bring to a low boil. Next, add cornstarch and stir until it mixture thickens.

Add onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir in grated cheese until melted. Remove from heat and serve.

I was feeling a bit fancy and decided to serve the cheese dip in a bread bowl. I added a variety of veggies and toasted bread for dipping. I also added some cheese cubes and crackers on the side for my youngest.


You can find Heluva Good! Cheese in an assortment of flavors at your local supermarkets, or Walmart, in the dairy aisle. You can click here to take advantage of a current Ibotta offer* for Heluva Good! Cheese.
