Queso (Cheese) Dip

Queso (Cheese) Dip This is the best queso dip! Being from Texas, I know my queso, and I think this is the one that beats them all! It’s full of flavor and all fresh ingredients. You can substitute half-and-half for the heavy whipping cream, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips.

  • Place poblano peppers, Anaheim peppers, and jalapeno pepper, cut-sides down, on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Cook peppers under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes. Place the blackened peppers into a bowl and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Allow the peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard skins; dice peppers.

  • Combine diced peppers, cheese food cubes, tomatoes, onion, butter, and cumin in a slow cooker.

  • Cook on Low, gradually adding cream, until cheese melts and dip is heated through, about 30 minutes.
