Slow Cooker Queso Blanco Dip


Queso Blanco Dip in the Slow Cooker… 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. After reading 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 because 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.

This is the perfect appetizer for game day too! The boys will love it. This dip also goes great with my guacamole and salsa too.  Yum!

  1. I absolutely love queso dip! I will have to try out this recipe! pinned!

  2. I love new dip recipes! This queso sounds so good, I can’t wait to try it!

  3. You speak my language – this looks awesome!

  4. YUMMY! One of my favorites… it looks so delicious! :D

  5. Looks like a football food! Can’t wait to try it out!

  6. I just love queso blanco dip – and made it for the firs time this week – delicious!

  7. Yum! I’m always looking for new dip recipes! And in the slow cooker is even better! So easy! This dip looks super tasty! Pinning!

  8. What size crockpot did you use? I make this on the stovetop on taco night and would love to switch to crockpot. Thanks

  9. How do you get the deli to slice you off a hunk of cheese like that? The few times I’ve needed a hunk of cheese from the deli, they are perplexed when I ask for anything other than sandwich slices. 

  10. I love this, I must try! Thanks for sharing.

  11. what is the white american cheese?  What brand?  Can I use Queso Fresco?

  12. Just made this dip and it is indeed awesome!  But question, the ingredient list calls for cilantro, but I didn’t see cilantro in the directions.  Where do you add the cilantro?  I just omitted it this time.  Really is a great dip!!

  13. I have this in the crock pot right now and we can’t wait to try it.

  14. How many does this feed?

  15. So glad to know that American cheese makes a difference! Pinning and trying this weekend!

  16. Good, but although the white American cheese does lend exceptional creaminess, I found the flavor a bit overpowering. I substituted Monterey Jack for 1/2 the American & was pleased with the taste. 

  17. Here is a terrific dip too. I don’t know where my friend got it from. All I know is that when I make it for a gathering I come home with an empty container and people wanting more or else the recipe. This dip is made in a separate bowl; then pured into a slow cooker only on the keep warm setting. You use one of those 2-quart or 3-quart slow cookers. Here’s the recipe: small tube of Jimmy Dean sausage, browned. 2 cans of Rotel tomatoes; drain one can but just add complete other can. 16-ounces of cream cheese. Put cream cheese into a bowl; add the drained tomatoes and the second can; then lastly add the sausage, drippings and all ( there isn’t much!) Mix thoroughly and put in slow cooker.

  18. I often make this but in the microwave vs slow cooker. I can see how the slow cooker would help retain the heat.

    I recommend adding 1-2 tsp crushed garlic for depth of flavor. It will store well and with a little milk, easily reheats. Great if thinned down and used to top nachose or burritos.

  19. Have you ever added cooked chorizo or beef to This recipe?  I Wonder how that would work.

  20. What size slow cooker would work best for this recipe? Thanks!

  21. This is really good!  Very much a great at home replica of restaurant style white cheese dip.  Would certainly make again!

  22. Looks good, will have to try it

  23. This dip was flavorful and a hit at my party. Thanks for the recipe!

  24. This is delicious and easy.  I use a 16 oz pack of kraft white singles instead of deli cheese. I’ve made this a few times, my family loves it. Thanks for the recipe  :)

    this is my favorite dip. Ummm.

  26. i am going to try this for a nacho station to serve 35-40 people.
    Would I need to double or triple this recipe?

  27. Hi! Can I sub mozzarella instead of white American? White American cheese is not available where I am :-( 

    Thank you! 

  28. Thank you for having a recipe for queso dip that doesn’t involve Velveeta. I made this for potluck and I it was gone in under an hour.

    My sister in law already asked me to make some for her Christmas party in my biggest crock pot LoL. She calls it “creamy crack”

  29. This was a huge hit at my in laws Christmas eve party. I put a little extra milk and set to Keep Warm and it seved everyone for 3 hours. My sister in law begged for the recipe and called it “cheese crack”

  30. I have been searching for a good queso recipe and have tried many different ones.  This hands down the best recipe and so easy.  I doubled the recipe and it took twice as long to cook to get the cheese melted so be aware of that.  I did add some extra Jalepenos and some of the juice, but that is because we wanted it a bit spicier.  Thank you so much for posting this!!!

  31. Very tasty!Like it a lot!

  32. Do you just serve with taco chips?  What else could you use?

  33. Looks good, will try

  34. I decided to make this one day and omg it was delicious and a crowd favorite. Now whenever we have a potluck everyone asks me to make this dip.

  35. I would think that you would need no larger than a 2 quart slow cooker. You have only about 32 ounces (one quart) total ingredients.
