This dip is similar to white cheese sauces served in many Mexican restaurants. The amount of heat can be adjusted by adding your favorite chili pepper or crushed cayenne pepper to taste. As is, it is kid-friendly, quick, and delicious! It can be used as a dip for tortilla chips or a sauce for many Mexican dishes
