Tips, Tricks, and Variations

How to Spice Up Your Dip: To increase the heat, add the seeds of the jalapeño, or add a dash more cayenne pepper.

Choose the Right Pepper: The older the pepper, the spicier it will be. Look for stress marks—white lines or flecks—on the flesh for spicier peppers. Younger peppers have a clear, shiny appearance and are milder. Choose based on your spice preference.

Cheese Variations: This dip works great with any number of different cheeses. Feel free to swap in your favorite and enjoy!

Make it in a Crockpot: For an easier version, prepare this dish in a crockpot. Follow the recipe, but transfer everything to a slow cooker and cook on low for about 2 hours.
