cheddar cheese dip with jalapeños

trader joe's pub cheese with jalapeños

Since I’ve got a ready supply of jalapeños at the moment, I’m always looking for ways to use them.  Chris recently discovered Trader Joe’s Pub Cheese, a “gourmet spreadable cheese,” reminiscent of Velveeta, but with more flavor.  It comes in three flavors: Sharp Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar with Jalapeños, and Sharp Cheddar with Horseradish.  For our new favorite dip, I melt the cheese, add a tablespoon or two of drained salsa, and some sliced jalapeños.  It is so simple and easy, yet very tasty.  Next time, I might make nachos by adding Ortega chiles, canned no-bean chili, diced tomatoes to the melted cheese and then spooning all that gooey cheese over tortilla chips.  Yum!!
