Queso Dip

Queso Dip

We’ve had another week of hot weather – ugh, I am ready for fall! I’ve had little desire to cook while it’s been so hot outside so I recently decided to have a Mexican-style snack dinner. This time, I decided to switch it up and try something new – queso dip. I found a tasty recipe over at Dinner then Dessert that sounded perfect. We had chips with salsa, guacamole, queso dip, mini shredded beef tacos, and fresh fruit for dinner. We all thought this dip was tasty and I could tell my son especially loved it because he kept going back for more. I loved that this queso uses real cheese and just a few other ingredients. We all thought the flavor was delicious and I imagine it would be tasty on nachos.

How to Make Queso Dip

Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk for 1 minute. Slowly add the milk while whisking continuously until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, green chiles, cheddar cheese, and jack cheese until the mixture is completely combined and smooth (except for the tomatoes & green chiles). Serve immediately.

Side Note: Best when made right before serving.

  1. I love queso dip and yours looks delicious. I’ve been ready for fall since about May.

  2. Sounds like a great meal for a hot day. It’s supposed to cool down here on Saturday!

  3. I don’t think I know of a single person who wouldn’t be thrilled to sit down at your table and enjoy that meal. The queso dip looks terrific.

  4. YES! I love Mexican snacks as a dinner idea. Especially if this queso is front and center.

  5. this is the kind of thing i have to deliberately avoid at a party–it’s so addictive! i like that you used real cheese instead of velveeta (not that there’s anything wrong with that…). 🙂
