Queso Blanco, a recipe for a restaurant style white queso dip without a lot of effort. This creamy, cheesy Queso Blanco is made with just 4 ingredients; white cheese, heavy cream, tomato and jalapeño!
I have long
loved lived for Queso Blanco. I was such a picky eater growing up, white queso dip was my dinner at Mexican restaurants. While my tastes have grown, my love for this white queso dip hasn’t waned. This Tex Mex classic is the perfect prerequisite to tacos, taco salads, burritos and more!
Queso is my guilty pleasure. I cannot resist a dip! It’s so creamy and full of flavor.
Through the years, you have made my queso recipes incredibly popular by sharing them on Pinterest. Chevy’s Chili Con Queso, Bacon Cheddar Cheese Dip, and one of my all time favorites, Creamy Spinach Dip!
Basically, I could live off of white cheese dip alone. Given that you’re reading along right now, I assume that you could, too! Well, you’re in luck. This is the easiest queso dip recipe I have shared to date!
It takes less than 10 minutes to make this easy appetizer.
Queso Blanco is made with just 4 ingredients
- White American Cheese (found in the deli counter). You can substitute with Velveeta
- Heavy Cream
- Fresh Jalapeño
- Fresh Tomato
This dip is absolutely amazing made fresh. However, if you’re in a pinch, you can drain a can of Rotel and replace the fresh jalapeño and tomato.
You can make it as mild or as spicy as you’d like. If you want your dip to have a little heat, select jalapeños that have developed white lines, flecks or stretch marks. That’s indicative of an older pepper, which tends to be hotter.
A smooth jalapeño is younger and therefore milder.
White Queso Dip the Perfect Appetizer For These Mex and Tex Mex Dishes
