2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chillies
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 pinch cayenne pepper to taste

Step 3: If the dip is too thick, add in some more milk. Adjust according to your liking. Continue to simmer until heated through.

Step 4: Once done, allow to cool at room temperature.

Step 5: Best serve over burritos or nachos. Enjoy!
