One 1-pound block processed cheese, such as Velveeta, cut into cubes

One 5-ounce can evaporated milk 

1 teaspoon dry mustard 

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar 

Pinch kosher salt 

1 clove garlic


  1. Place a double boiler over medium heat. Add the cubed cheese and milk and heat, stirring, until the cheese is melted and the mixture is combined, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mustard, vinegar and salt. Grate the garlic into the mixture using a rasp grater; stir to combine. Cook until the flavors meld, an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
