Creamy Queso Recipe

Creamy Queso Recipe

Queso made with cheese, milk, chiles and for a tangy twist, pickled jalapeños. The cheese you choose will affect the taste and texture of the dip. For the smoothest dip that resembles jarred, store-bought queso, use half cheddar or Monterey Jack and half American cheese  — use slices or ask the deli counter to give you a slab from the block of the unsliced cheese, and then grate it at home yourself.

If you don’t want to use American cheese, you can achieve the same creamy, stabilized texture with addition of cream cheese — which also has stabilizers added. Use your favorite type of cheese and then add cream cheese.

If you don’t like the idea of cream cheese or American cheese in your queso, you can still make queso dip! Use any melty cheese, just keep in mind that the dip won’t be as smooth and is best when eaten straight away. (We share more about this in the article above.)
