Zesty Cheese Dip

 

 

This dip is perfect with our Soft Pretzel Bites, but it’s also delicious for dipping tortilla chips or your favorite veggies. You can certainly buy a jar of cheese dip in the store, but this dip is so much better; and, it doesn’t have any of those weird ingredients. It only takes a few minutes to make your own cheese dip and you have the added benefit of being able to adjust the heat to your preference.
