several dashes hot pepper sauce (to suit taste)
1 cup cubed pasteurized process cheese spread (4 oz) (Velveeta type)
2 tbsp canned diced green chili peppers
1 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 to 2 tbsp milk (for thinning)
Serve with assorted vegetables and whole-grain crackers for dipping.
In a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl, combine beer or apple juice and hot pepper sauce. Microwave on high, uncovered, 1 to 2 minutes until very hot. Meanwhile, combine cubed cheese, green chilies, flour, and mustard. Stir into the hot mixture. Cook, uncovered, on high an additional 2 to 4 minutes or until cheese starts to melt and mixture is heated through, stirring every minute. Stir in enough milk to make dip of dipping consistency.
Yields about 3/4 cup.
