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:

  1. It was SO quick & easy to make!
  2. 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.

    I made this recipe last week. I really liked the flavor, and it came out silky smooth!

    1. Ann, I am so glad you liked it! It’s definitely a family favorite around my house. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  2. Made the dip– started silky but when I added green chillies it became grainy. What did I do wrong?

    1. Did you use cheese that you shredded yourself? Prepackaged cheese has other additives that can make the sauce grainy. Also, if you cook the sauce over high heat it will “break” and become grainy.

      1. Heat was probably the culprit. I did grate the cheese by hand.

        1. Yep, probably the heat.

  3. Renee Goerger says:

    We love all things with green chiles. This creamy cheesy dip is one of our favorites!

    1. I’m so glad you like the recipe. I always make it for parties and big games.

  4. This queso recipe brings me back to when we were living in Texas…there was a restaurant called Chuy’s that had queso like this. I can’t wait to try it.

    1. Hi Sandi, I hope you love the recipe! ANd I’ve heard a lot about Chuy’s, never been though. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  5. Would it work to add I. Some queso fresco as well?

    1. Karen, I do not recommend using queso fresco as it does not melt and will add a very clumpy texture to this dip.
