No eye of newt or wing of bat in this creamy dip; just an easy mix of melted cheeses and a touch of garlic.
loaf (16 oz) prepared cheese product, cut into cubes
container (8 oz) reduced-fat chives-and-onion cream cheese
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
large clove garlic, finely chopped
oz blue tortilla chips (from two 9-oz bags)
In 1 1/2-quart microwavable bowl, mix all ingredients except tortilla chips. Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 8 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes, until cheese is melted and dip is smooth.
Serve warm with tortilla chips.
To make on the stovetop, mix all ingredients except the tortilla chips in a double boiler. Cook over hot water on medium heat, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth.
To easily remove the skin from a clove of garlic, smash the clove with the flat side of a heavy knife to crack the skin, and then slip it off.
