 Author’s Notes:
     Here it is, folks!  By popular demand, the cheese dip known to
 make women fa int, strong men cry, and small children run for their
 mommies. This started out as an attempt to replicate a Chili con Queso
 dip, but took off in its own direct ion.
 
     This recipe may be doubled, quadruped or even sextupled without
 problem. Go easy on the red pepper if your guests don't like hot food.
 The effect, if done correctly, should be an initial impression of
 cheese, cumin, sour cream and garl ic followed a second later by a
 sinus-cleaning heat. As one partaker has put it ``You have to keep
 eating because if you don't, you'll die.''  Guaranteed to inc rease
 beer consumption at parties. Good Luck!
 
 Difficulty    : very easy.
 Precision     : Measure the spices, just so you'll know how much you have put in
 .
