"very good. family and friends really liked it. i may try a lower sodium soup because I thought it was a tad bit salty if the chips had salt."

"What a wonderful dip, everyone who tried it loved it. I will be making this delicious and easy dip again in the future.

I made mine directly in the crock pot. First I sauteed the onion and celery in a pan with a little bit of oil until it was tender then added it straight into my 2qt crock pot along with all of the other ingredients. I also added 1/2 cup of Mexican cheese with the cheddar.
Add about 1/8tsp Daves Insanity Sauce to kick it up a notch =)"

"Boy am I glad that I doubled this recipe for yesterday's Christmas party. Like others mentioned, it went over so well that several people asked for this recipe. I did a few minor adjustments.. I used Tillamook reduced calorie cheddar cheese, 12 ounces of evaporated milk, 7 ounces green chilies and I didn't double the celery or onions. Although I increased the liquid (evaporated milk) and didn't increase the celery or onions, it was still a thick dip since I prepared it the night before to let the flavors blend together. I'm definitely making this again!"

"Prepared this on the stovetop, sauteing onions and celery first, adding remaining ingredeints except cheese plus a couple of tablespoons of chopped jalapenos until heated through. Removed from heat and stirred in cheese until melted. Very good and about as quick as the microwave method."

"This recipe is always a crowd pleaser and it's so easy to throw together. I don't always put the celery in if I don't have it on hand. I have made many variations of this just adding whatever I have on hand such as olives, jalapenos etc. Works just as well with regular milk if you don't have evaporated milk on hand. I definitely recommend doubling the recipe because it will go fast!"

"I made this dip today for a birthday party I hosted and all of the guests loved it. I ended up providing the recipe to almost every guest. The only difference I made in the recipe was to use green onions with the tops diced in and placed it in a small crockpot to keep it warm through the entire party. Thanks!!"
