I found that it was Queso Blanco. Queso blanco is a creamy, soft, mild cheese commonly used in several Latin countries, including Mexico. "Queso Blanco" is Spanish for "white cheese" and similar cheeses are found throughout the world by different names.
I could not get enough of this wonderful, creamy, chip dip/sauce. In fact, I didn't even eat my entree. I just sat there, gloriously dipping and munching on this new found creation.
Coming home, I began my quest to find a great recipe and found one that uses white American cheese that you can find in the deli of just about any grocery store.
The spices were readily available in my pantry.
The cream is warmed on the stove and the cubes of cheese are dropped in, a few cubes at a time while stirring constantly. Stirring prevents the milk from burning and helps the cheese melt evenly. The spices and pepper are added after the cheese melts.
Creamy, cheesey, goodness that I can have any time!
