Chef Tips and Tricks

If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use a blender, but you may have to do it in steps and do not overfill it.

You can use any type of cheese you like. I like using a cheese a can shred at home because it melts better (mozzarella, cheddar, Colby Jack, Monterey Jack) however a pre-shredded cheese will work as well
