I was just pulling your chain
For the melting cheese, I would probably chop up some jalopenos or some other peppers and maybe add some cumin and milk. Then use it with tortilla chips.
Rainee posted this a while ago. I have not tried it yet, but it looks great. I bet your melting cheese would be perfect here.
1 cup cheese (Monterey Jack, Asadero or Chihuahua) shredded fine
4 ounces green chiles
1/4 cup Half & Half
2 tablespoons onion, chopped fine
2 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.
