1 tsp crushed garlic

1 cup warm water

1 1/4 cup milk

1 1/2 cup grated Colby Cheese

Pinch chilli powder (optional)

Shake of pepper

1 tsp corn flour (if needed)


1Combine all of the ingredient into the pot of a 1.5lt slow cooker, leaving out 1/2 cheese and corn flour.

2Stir thoroughly and cook on high for 45 minutes, stirring two or three times further.

I made this with 1 cup tasty cheese and a half cup of parmesan. Also added bacon and shallots as suggested by Tracy. Really good!

Whoops – just realised I used Mozarella cheese instead of a tasty cheese, so that probably affected my outcome!

My 4yo liked it, but the rest of us found it pretty bland. Took a lot longer than 1.5 hours…..roughly 4 hours on high!
