  3. Broil 1-2 minutes or until the cheeses are melted (watch carefully). Garnish with sour cream and green onions. Serve with tortilla chips.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

You could try a medium or sharp aged Wisconsin cheddar in this recipe. Cheddar that has been aged longer will have a bolder flavor and blend into the dip easier.
