Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Colby, Cream Cheese or Monterey Jack can be used in this recipe.


  1. Beat the cream cheese, salsa, sour cream, colby and green onions in a large bowl until blended. Spread colby mixture into the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  2. Measure 1 cup crushed tortilla chips; set aside the remaining chips for serving. Arrange the crushed tortilla chips in a rectangle on top of colby mixture, about 5 x 4-inches.
  3. Cut 1 block (8 ounces) monterey jack in half into two blocks, each about 1/2-inch thick. Cut slices with a 1 1/2-inch star cookie cutter, using the handle of a small spoon to press and release cheese from cutter at star points. Place stars on chips. Shred 2 cups (8 ounces) from the remaining monterey jack.
  4. Combine tomatoes and red bell pepper in a bowl. For stripes, arrange tomato mixture and shredded monterey jack in alternating rows, each about 1-inch.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until serving. Serve with the reserved tortilla chips.

Cheesemonger Tip

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Experience Hook’s World Champion Colby; it is delectable and crafted with a traditional washed curd giving the cheese a more open texture and sweeter flavor than cheddar.
