More time-intensive really, but it takes a lot of work to cook ribs all day.

Both labor and time intensive, but worth it.

5. Queso

At least for my grandmother's recipe. It's got all sorts of spices and such and the part that says "stir constantly under low heat, adding milk slowly until thickened" (this is just for the base, before you add the cheese)
--you stir for 30 minutes, adding the milk little by little, and wonder if the thickening is happening
--you stir for another 30 minutes. Did I miss it? Seems kindof viscous...
--I'll keep heating and stirring a little more...hmmm, nothing's happening
--screw this, I'll give up; how much difference could it make?
--at about the hour and a half mark--OMG! It just magically thickened into a paste! I'm done! Yay! Now I can add the cheese and heat some more and then take it off the burner, let it cool, and don't touch it until tomorrow.

Best damn spicy cheese dip I've ever had.

Unfortunately for my wife, most of the time they are not vegetarian, as restaurants generally fry them in the same oil as the fish for obvious reasons.
