QUICK NACHO CHEESE DIP
2 slices Deluxe American cheese, torn in pieces
2 tablespoons chunky salsa *
Put the cheese pieces in a small microwaveable bowl; top with the salsa. Cover and microwave on 40-50% power for 1 minute. Stir and microwave another 30 seconds on 40-50% or until the cheese has melted completely and the dip becomes smooth and creamy when you stir it with a spoon. Serve at once with pork rinds or raw vegetables (not included in the nutritional counts).
Makes 1-2 servings
* I used Walmart's Great Value Chunky Salsa, which has 1 carb per tablespoon.
TIP: Don't try pouring the nacho cheese dip over a pile of pork rinds. They turn soggy very quickly once the hot cheese touches them.

This is such a simple idea that I don't know why I never thought of doing it before now. It makes a quick snack but the dip could also be used as a cheese sauce over cooked vegetables or meat. Click the photo to see a close-up.
