Ingredients

2 Tbs butter

1/2 medium onion, chopped

1 large garlic clove, chopped

1/4 tsp cumin

black pepper

3 or 4 peeled canned tomatoes, or 2 peeled fresh tomatoes

2/3 C whole roasted green chiles

8 oz white cheese - Monterey Jack is ok

3 oz cream cheese, diced

1/2 - 2/3 C cream

Directions

Warm cheese to room temperature. Melt butter in small saucepan, add onion and garlic, cover and sweat for 5 minutes over low heat. Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, green chiles, cumin and pepper in a food processor and chop thoroughly (don't puree). Add tomato mixture to pan, cook at medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until most of the water has evaporated.

Remove pan from heat, add cheese and stir until melted. Add cream to thin as needed. If you need to rewarm the dip use very low heat to avoid breaking down the cheese. Serve with tortilla chips, or flour tortillas

"First made these (and reviewed) in 2011. This NYE I made a big box of mixed cashews and walnuts and they were very popular. Highly recommend these. Make sure you boil the honey and butter for the full 2 minutes; and once you've coated in the sugar and cinnamon stir occasionally to keep nuts separated." - nannylyn

"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through. But, this is a good substitute for nights when firing up the grill would not be optimal. Made several tweaks. Also recommend keeping some sauce on the side for dipping." - mrsoul51
