The BEST White Queso Dip Recipe


– 2 Tablespoons olive oil – 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced – 2 medium jalapeno peppers, diced (about 1/4 cup) – 16 oz. Monterrey-Jack cheese, shredded – 8 oz. White Cheddar cheese (American cheese can be substituted) – 1 (10 oz.) can, diced tomatoes and chilies (like Rotel) – 1/2 - 3/4 cup half and half – 1 Tablespoon hot sauce (optional)


Step 1: Sautee Peppers and Onions

In a medium skillet, add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the diced jalapenos and onion, and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until the onions are translucent.

Step 2: Add the cheese & Rotel

To the sauteed onions and peppers, add in the shredded cheeses, tomatoes and optional hot sauce. Reduce the heat to medium, and continually stir.

Step 3: add in half and half

As the cheeses melt, gradually add in the half and half to keep the mixture smooth.

Step 4: Keep heat LOW

Be sure to keep the heat moderate to low - DONT use high heat. A high temperature will cause the cheese to seize up and become lumpy, dry and separate.

Step 5: Enjoy While Hot

Serve the dip right away while hot. Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips.
