If you make this Green Chile White Queso Blanco for a party, get ready to be the most popular person in the room! Not only is it SO flavorful, but it’s simple to make. When I’m entertaining for a sporting event or party, this queso dip is usually the last thing I make because I like to serve it warm.
Recently we had family over, and I made this while talking with my sister-in-law and niece. When I poured the finished queso dip into my serving bowl they were blown away by two things:
- It was SO quick & easy to make!
- It was so, so, SO good!
Cook’s Note – Green Chile White Queso Dip:
- Please, please, PLEASE only use freshly grated cheese for this recipe. The pre-shredded variety has anti-clumping additives that add a grainy texture to this white queso.
- Leftover white queso dip will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days.
- To reheat the queso, place it in the microwave and heat on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir and then repeat until heated through.
- This green chile white queso doubles nicely. Just make sure you use a large saucepan when making a double batch.
