    You can (and I have) use cheddar cheese, but it gets all funky when you mix it with the ranch dressing.....gets all 'curdled' looking.....must be the oils in the ranch dressing...

    You have to make a roux first, then add milk, then cheese.... kinda like making real mac & cheese.

    I'm with you Dix.

    The second two ingredients do not sound like good stuff. It's pretty easy to make a cheese dip with whole ingredients and not all the crap.

    Hidden Valley Ranch is not much better:
    Vegetable oil (likely GMO), egg yolk, sugar, salt, buttermilk, spices, garlic, onion, vinegar, phosphoric acid, xanthan gum, modified food starch, MSG, artificial flavors, disodium phosphate, sorbic acid, calcium disodium EDTA, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate.

    AND, if you have a smallish crockpot, and keep it on the lowest setting, it'll feed a crowd. Just need to refill from the main stash ;)

    This is inspiring. If you have a wood stove going and a trivet +a pot, you have a crock pot. My older son loves nachos. I'm going to fix up a batch with whole ingredients. Layer some fresh cooked black beans, homemade salsa, chips, and top with cheese, guacamole and spicy salsa. I'm drooling already.

    Oh definitely. Avocado is the coup de grace. My son likes black olives added too.
