Spend any time in Alaska and you will learn about the Kenai Alaska cheese dip.  This dip is easy to make and tastes great on burgers (photo on the right), tortilla chips, used as a pretzel dip and more.  There are several different recipes available, but here is one that we have liked.

What you will need:

  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup diced jalapeño peppers
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke

Mix all the ingredients together and keep chilled.  If you want to place this on a burger consider using a cheese melting grill dome or making a cover out of aluminum foil that will trap the heat and help to melt the cheese more quickly.
