Queso Dip

We had dinner last night with my brother and his 5 growing children, it was the perfect opportunity to make a batch of Queso. I had a Costco size bag of chips and everything in the fridge to make this easy dip. The 5 children and numerous adults deemed this amazing.
Best served from a Crock Pot on a warm setting. I used yellow American Cheese (I didn't want to go to multiple stores looking for white) although I have found it in the Deli at Walmart. I didn't use the cilantro or tomato (picky eaters). If making it for myself I would use plenty of both cilantro and tomato!

Queso Dip
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup finely diced white onion
1 medium jalapeno, finely diced
1 caned green chile, finely diced
10 ounces white American cheese, shredded  (purchase at deli counter)
6 ounces Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
1/2-3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 Roma tomato, seeds removed, finely diced

Heat oil in a medium pan. Cook the onion and Jalapeno pepper until soft. Reduce heat to medium low. Stir in the green chile, add the cheese and milk. Stir until mostly melted. Stir in the cilantro and tomato. Serve warm with chips.

Sounds delicious! I've only had cheese dips at Mexican restaurants. That's great to find a recipe to make it at home. Thanks!

Yum. Sounds delicious I love queso dip. I've even been hard up and just used american cheese slices, milk, and hot sauce before. Thanks for sharing with Great Idea Thursdays
