This truly does taste just like a favorite restaurant's recipe that I have been trying to duplicate for years. I'm embarrassed that is was so easy and I couldn't nail it! I cut the recipe in 1/2 since it was just a side dish for 4 - wished I would have made the full recipe!



this was a good recipe but i used white american cheese a lot creamier



I made this for a party and it was a big hit! It tastes sooo good and is very addicting! It makes A LOT of dip, though. Tastes good re-heated the next day....and the next...
