Jake’s Queso Blanco Habanero Dip is outstanding for dipping tortilla chips or drizzling over tacos, burritos, or your favorite Mexican dish.  Once you start eating this dip, it’s hard to stop and it’s so easy to make.  No need to add additional seasoning as our Jake’s Habanero has just the right mix of Habanero peppers.  For a richer dip substitute cream for milk.
