My friend came up with this recipe. The thick and creamy cheese dip gets its zip from convenient canned green chilies. It's a snap to zap in the microwave.—Rhonda McKee, Greensburg, Kansas

"Excellent... however, my family likes this type of dip a bit more spicy, so I added 1/2 cup chopped hot peppers and some of the juice from the jar, and some hot Taco Sauce.. that added the zip needed. And, it needs to stay warm, so I served it from a small crock pot set on warm. My family raved. I liked the ease of making it mostly in the microwave."
