A delicious creamy tomato dip with a touch of spice. It’s very easy to make and you can easily double or even triple the recipe to feed a crowd.

This recipe is part of our Memorial Day Menu.


  • 1 onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeno (add more or less depending on how spicy you want the dip)
  • 1 can tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 2 cups cheese, grated, preferably Monterey Jack

To Serve:

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2-3 Tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 green onions, finely sliced

Step 1: Making the Tomato Mixture

– Chop up the onion and green pepper, and then fry them in a pot with a little olive oil until they’re soft.

– Chop the jalapeno and add it with the can of chopped tomatoes and the cumin to the pot with the onions.

– Bring this tomato mixture to a boil.

Step 2: Making it Creamy

– Grate the cheese if it’s not already done, and toss it with the flour.

– Add the cheese to the hot tomato mixture and stir until it is melted and smooth.

Step 3: Serving

– Scoop the dip into a nice bowl and top with sour cream, freshly chopped cilantro, and sliced green onions.

– Of course this dip is delicious with corn chips, but for something a bit special, try it with our Grilled Quesadillas.
