What kind of cheese do you use in queso dip?

There are so many variaties of queso out there. Most of them, like this one, include processed cheese like velveeta, or American. Sometimes cheddar, mozzarella or jack.

Basically, the options are pretty much endless. When choosing a cheese, you just want to make sure that it melts well. For example, cheddar is good, parmesan not so good.

    Life would be pretty dull without an amazing cheese dip! And you HAVE to include a little kick to it. We don’t buy cans of Ro-Tel — we buy cases of it. We do use the processed cheese for sauces – it melts beautifully and I really like your addition of other cheeses. I’m trying out your recipe.
