Author Notes: This simple, yet delicious dip has been a staple at many of the dinner parties and get-togethers I attended while growing up. The New Mexican green chile is the highlight of this dip, as it is in most of the state's cuisine, and makes much more of an impact if freshly roasted chiles are used instead of canned. When paired with fresh corn tortilla chips, this queso is the perfect starter for a true New Mexican meal. - Katie
