New Year's Queso

We have a long-standing tradition of eating greens, black-eyed peas and pork on New Year's Day. I can never quite remember what they symbolize - I think the greens are for for money, peas for good luck, and pork...maybe it's to assure you'll have plenty of bacon and BBQ in the new year. Regardless, we have the Homesick Texan to thank for this year's New Year's meal. I couldn't wait until Sunday to try this one, so I went ahead and made the Queso Compuesto (recipe here) last night (see below). A definite winner.
