Queso Blanco Dip


Best. Dip. EVER.  A must try!  I got this from Seeded At The Table website.  It is a definite crowd pleaser!
  • 1 1/4 (1.25) lb block White American Cheese (Land O'Lakes brand preferred), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup diced green chiles, from a can
  • 2 pickled jalapenos, chopped
  • 1 ounce pickled jalapeno juice
  • pinch of cumin (optional)
Stir together the cheese cubes, milk and water into a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir after every minute. The mixture might seem watery during the first few stirs, but should come together as a nice runny dip after all the cheese is melted. Remove from the microwave and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Serve immediately as a dip with tortilla chips or as a sauce over your favorite Mexican dish. If using for a party dip, transfer to a small Crock Pot on the warm setting.
*Recipe Note: White American cheese is found at most deli counters in your local grocery store. Land o' Lakes is my preferred brand, however, I have had great results with Boar's Head, too.

*Reheat Instructions: Store any leftover cheese dip in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until creamy and hot.
