    I have had this WONDERFUL crowed pleasing recipe for many years. All my friends and family ask for it for every occasion. I however suggest when making it after you put the meat in the crock pot heat your milk and soup together because it makes the cheese melt a bit faster. As time consuming as this recipe is it is one of the best dips ever. I also think making the salsa a day or 2 ahead helps speed up the time. My husband prefers the dip on day 2.
    This was my moms recipe, janet higgins and i was 2 when this came out. She is a great chef and you should try this recipe, i really like it!
    Have made this several times and is always a big hit!
    i love spicy food and my family is big on spicy and cheese so this was a big hit. it was very good it never lasts more than ten mins.!
    I hesitated using the cream of mushroom soup and the milk but I figured life is too short not to try new things so I did and it was surprising good. The flavor of the garlic, jalapenos,onions and the cilantro cuts through the cheese to give the dip a great spicy kick.
    This recipe is definately good, just not the best I've ever had.
    I brought this dip to a family pic-nic and everyone just could not get enough. It was totally gone before we even had the BBQ done!
    This is an excellent dish. I get more requests for this than anything. It is a bit of work to make, but worth it!
    I have made several cheese dips before, and this was not good. The salsa recipe to go in it, was fabulous, but with the cream of mushroom soup and milk, it made it taste too milky. I'm glad I always try out new recpes before serving to people, I would have been embarassed to serve this.
    I made this for a family gathering during the holidays, and it was a hit! It was easy to make and tasted deliciously spicy. This dip is the perfect addition to any party.
