Slow cooker queso blanco dip
Slow cooker queso blanco dip – 5 minutes to prep and only 5 ingredients to make! This cheese dip is seriously the best ever!
One of my favorite appetizers to get when eating out is Queso blanco dip. I decided to make some at home over the weekend and it turned out amazing. I had read online that white american cheese (only found in the deli) is the way to go. I had experimented with other cheeses before and the white american cheese really is the way to go. It creates a super creamy dip and the green chilies gives this dip the perfect kick. This dip really isn’t too spicy (my kids loved it), but if you don’t like any spice, just add half the amount of green chilies and omit the jalapenos.
Queso blanco dip
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 45-60 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
8 oz block regular cream cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 lb white american cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes (found in deli)
1 Tablespoon salted butter
1 (4oz can) Old El Paso Green Chiles
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped fine (optional)
1 Tablespoon Old El Paso jalepenos, minced fine (optional)
3-4 Tablespoons milk
2-3 Tablespoons water
In a slow cooker combine the cream cheese, american cheese, butter, green chiles and jalepenos. Cook on high for 30 minutes. Stir the mixture until well combined and then add a Tablespoon of milk and water at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Cook for another 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted and combined.
Keep cheese dip in the slow cooker on the warm setting until ready to serve.
Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container. To warm: place in the microwave with 1 teaspoon of water for 30 seconds. Stir and add another teaspoon of water if needed. Heat by 30 second increments until hot.
This dip really is so easy to make. Just dump it all in the slow cooker and let it do all the work for you! The cream cheese and american cheese create the creamiest dip ever. And the Old El Paso green chiles and jalepenos add the perfect flavor. Yum!
