Mexican Restaurant Style White Cheese (Queso) Dip

Mexican Restaurant Style White Cheese (Queso) Dip 1


  • 1 pound white, deli-sliced American cheese
  • ⅔ cup of milk or half-and-half
  • 3-4 tablespoons of canned, chopped green chiles or jalepenos
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder (optional)


Use a slow cooker and turn to the lowest settings. You don’t want to cook it too fast, otherwise, you can ruin the texture of the cheese. Let it cook very slowly and gradually. Dump all the ingredients in, heat and stir until it’s thickened. If you’re using a double boiler, heat the milk separately with chopped chiles and spices. Then, add in the American Cheese, gradually. About 1 – 2 slices are ideal and keep stirring until it’s completely melted and together.

If using a double boiler, heat the milk, chopped chiles and spices, then gradually add in the American cheese, 1-2 slices at a time, stirring until fully melted and absorbed together.
