Chuy's Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Recipe

I have been seeing that Chuys fan's are truly fanatics.  I first noticed it on pinterest, and after that, it seemed to be every where.  (it is a valid psychological phenomenon)  A few weekends back, when were in Orlando for the Party for the Senses, I took the kids to dinner at Chuys, just to see what the fuss was all about.  I did really enjoy my meal, which was this recipe.  The star of the meal was the creamy jalapeno sauce, we had with the chips, I will be trying that one soon.  I didn't start with it because looking for that recipe, I found many versions, and this recipe is supposed to be from the restaurant itself.  If you click on the title and go to the original post, there is a video too.  I did like this.  It wasn't just like the restaurant because it was nowhere as hot, but I seeded my peppers and bought mild roasted green chiles.  I figured erring on the side of caution was better.  I was a little aghast to see so much processed cheese in it, but usually American cheese can't be substituted in sauces without texture issues.  We all liked the sauce, a lot and are a little embarrassed about that;).  My husband, who loathes American cheese the way I loathe yellow mustard, was positively annoyed he liked it so much.  this makes a ton of sauce.  We used as much a possible, and we only used half.  It was very easy too.  The only issue you may have is if you don't have a kitchen scale.  Everything but the lime juice needs to be weighed.
