  • 4 ounces of shredded cheese
  • 4 ounces of canned diced tomatoes and green chilies

  • Stir in 4 oz of shredded cheese until it’s fully melted.

Serve with pork rinds, sliced bell peppers, or celery sticks. If you’re not serving immediately, transfer to a slow cooker on Warm setting.

Shopping notes

The heavy whipping cream can be tough to spot at times. It usually sits next to the milk or sour cream.

Any bag of shredded cheese should work though I used Monterrey Jack for this recipe.

You can get any brand of canned diced tomatoes and green chilies. I like Rotel.
