Here's a recipe from the Southern Season in Chapel Hill, NC, provided by chef Devon Mills. Grate cheese first and let stand until room temperature; it will combine better. Blend all ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
Makes 1 1/2 cups of spread.
Please note, Devon allows for additional heat beyond the jalapenos, and has no particular sauce or amount thereof, to use. That's your option. Adios.
