Queso Blanco Dip (White Cheese Dip)

this stuff is toddler approved. that's all i really need to say, isn't it?

Queso Blanco Dip (White Cheese Dip) adapted from Pennies on a Platter
You Need:
1 1/4 block of American Cheese (cut into 1 inch cubes)
1/4 cup diced green chiles
2 jalepenos chopped (i used canned)
1 ounce jalepeno juice (i used the canned juice)
2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 cup water
pinch of cumin (optional)

Directions: Toss all the ingredients into a large microwave safe bowl.

Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir after every minute.

The mixture will seem pretty watery at first- but keep at it- it'll come together beautifully as it all melts.
you may have to microwave it a bit longer- mine took 7 minutes total.

Server pronto as a dip with tortilla chips or even as a sauce on some Mexican food.

*Things to note:
- buy the block of cheese at your local Deli counter. go for the good stuff- Land O Lakes is best
- store leftovers in the fridge. re-heat in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds or so until hot

*PPS: i had about 1 cup worth leftover & i used it 2 days later by adding it to my normal macaroni & cheese recipe. i tossed it right in after making the rue & adding the milk. omg. amazing. there's just something about American Cheese.

Pin It!
