How to make Easy Homemade Queso Dip Recipe
To begin making the Easy Homemade Queso Dip recipe, melt the butter over medium heat in a saucepan.
When the butter starts to melt, add the chopped onions, green chillies and 2 tablespoons of green onions.
Saute for 2 to 3 minutes until the onions are soft and you get a nice aroma from the slightly fried onions, green chillies and green onions.
Stir in milk and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
When the milk comes to a low simmer, add about 3 to 4 slices of cheese, roughly cut up and continue to stir. Whisk until the mixture turns smooth and creamy.
If you find the queso mixture too runny, add more cheese slices one at a time until you get the desired consistency of the cheese dip.
Remove from heat, garnish with more green onions and serve hot as a dip with tortilla chips, potato chips, pretzels, crackers or with any Mexican dish.
You can add any type of cheese you have like grated cheddar cheese, mozzarella, tinned cheese etc. as long as they melt while heating.
Stir in more jalapenos, red onions or green onions for more flavor and crunch.
For a different aroma, try adding some dried oregano leaves, basil or even finely chopped cilantro/coriander leaves in the cheesy mixture.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator in airtight containers; reheat adding more milk to loosen the dip, stirring well, either in the microwave or over a stove top.
