Set aside to cool. In a large mixing bowl, combine 12 ounces shredded Swiss cheese, 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, and freshly ground salt and pepper, to taste. Finally, add the sautéed chopped onion to the mixture. Stir well. Spoon the mixture into an ungreased baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees (F) for about 20 minutes, or until bubbly and beginning to brown on top. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Curried Chutney Cheese Spread. This is a mild, sweet spread composed of cream cheese, toasted almonds, chutney and curry powder. It is a nice departure from cheese spreads with sharp cheese and veggies. Ingredients: 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened to room temperature ½ cup toasted finely chopped almonds (I used slivered almonds. I chopped them in an electric kitchen chopper and toasted them in a small skillet on the stove in ½ tablespoon olive oil, stirring constantly.) ¼ cup chutney ½ teaspoon curry powder In a mixing bowl, mix together an 8-oz. package of softened cream cheese, ½ cup toasted finely chopped almonds, ¼ cup chutney, and ½ teaspoon curry powder. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until well-blended. Spoon mixture into a nice serving dish. Cover and chill for about 8 hours. Serve with dippers, such as apple slices, ginger snaps, and a variety of crackers. This cheese spread has a delicious taste, and you can make it diet-friendly by using fat-free cream cheese, and by serving it with apple and pear slices, and also some celery sticks! I hope you enjoy this recipe! –Betty ?
In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Super Simple Bean and Cheese Dip. This dip is composed of refried beans, cheddar cheese soup, milk, and chopped green chiles. It is heated just to boiling, and then it’s ready to serve with chips! Ingredients: 16-oz. can refried beans 10 ¾-oz. can condensed cheddar cheese soup ¼ cup milk ½ of a 4-oz. can chopped green chiles, undrained (You may use the full 4-oz. can, if you want the dip to be a little spicier!) tortilla chips (I used Frito’s Scoops) In a medium-sized pot, combine a 16-oz. can of refried beans, a 10.75-oz. can of condensed cheddar cheese soup, ¼ cup milk, and 2 to 4 oz. chopped green chiles. Stir until combined. Heat slowly, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Transfer to a serving bowl, and serve with tortilla chips. This is a nice dip to put in a crock pot and keep warm during a party. (You may want to double the recipe if you’re taking it to a get-together. It’s great for holiday parties or sports games or just when you’re lounging on the sofa and feel like a spicy snack. I hope you enjoy this recipe! –Betty ?
