Fiesta Baked Cheese Dip

I found this recipe several years ago at Kraft Recipes, and have been making it ever since. I made this again this year for Christmas Eve and it was a big hit with everyone again! :) It's the easiest and tastiest cheese dip recipe, and it gets even better when you reheat it day after day!! Plus it's pretty too! :) Enjoy!! :)

(We eat it with tortilla chips and Ruffles, either are YUM! And I usually don't put sour cream on top of it, because Adam doesn't like it if he can see it haha, but it still tastes YUM without it!) ;)
