  3. Reduce heat to medium and add in your cheese and stir until it is melty and nice and smooth.
  4. Mix in all the seasonings. Stir until well blended and serve with tortilla chips.

Tips + Tricks:

To keep it warm and smooth you can serve in a crock pot over warm or low heat and stir occasionally. This will keep it from hardening during a party.
