A white dipping sauce served in many restaurants with chips or hot flour tortillas
for dipping. This is a basic recipe that uses 'Jack' for the TexMex version
and Chihuahua and/or Asadero for the more traditional Mexican version.
1 cup cheese (Monterey jack, Asadero or Chihuahua), shredded fine
1/4 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons onion, chopped fine
teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Serrano pepper, chopped fine (optional)
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped fine (optional)
Put all ingredients in a double boiler and heat on medium. Cook until melted
and well blended, stirring occasionally.
Serve with fresh tostadas or hot flour tortillas.
