Day 29:Cheese Dip

There is one cheese dip that trumps all others and I'm going to share the recipe with you right now.  This would definitely get eaten up at a football party, holiday party, or any other event where food is involved.  It's easy to make, great leftover, and delicious.

I've been wanting to share this recipe with you all month, but just like making this apple pie for myself wouldn't be a good idea, neither would making this dip.  You see, it's loaded with fat and grease (which equals yummy) and even though I'm pregnant, I try not to give into all of my cravings.  I waited for my parents to be in town so they could help me devour it, and they did.  Normally I make it with green chiles, but my husband doesn't care for those so I left them out.  I would recommend NOT leaving them out as they add quite a bit of flavor to the dip.

Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz. mild cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz. monterey jack cheese, grated
24 oz. sour cream
1 small can green chiles

Preheat oven to 375F.  Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish.  Lay 1/3 of sharp cheddar cheese on the bottom of the dish.  Place 1/3 of green chiles on top of this.  Then, spread 1/3 of the sour cream over this.  Next, sprinkle the mild cheddar, and top with monterey jack.  Repeat layers in this order 2 more times.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Serve hot with tortilla chips.
