Queso Dip

Posted on: 10/02/2017


Active: 15 min


Yield: 8 to 10 servings (about 3 cups)


Level: Easy



1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves

1/2 small red onion, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeno, optional

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

One 12-ounce domestic lager beer, such as Budweiser

1/4 cup whole milk

4 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Sprinkle of chipotle powder, optional

Tortilla chips, for serving


Put the cilantro, onions and pickled jalapeno if using on a cutting board, and chop them into a rough mixture.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, and stir until it is absorbed. Pour in the beer and milk; whisk constantly until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the Monterey Jack until completely melted and smooth.

Transfer the queso dip to a warmed serving dish, a fondue pot or a small slow cooker set to warm or low. Sprinkle the cilantro mixture on top, and sprinkle with a little chipotle powder if using. Serve with tortilla chips.

Cook’s Note

For a smooth, melted queso, be sure to use preshredded cheese.
