Queso Blanco

A twist on the classic, this cheese sauce is a little more mild than the sharp cheddar base.

Servings 4 servings


  • ½ lb. white American cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp. chopped green chilies canned
  • 1 tbsp. pickled jalapeno slices diced
  • 1 tbsp. pickled jalapeno juice
  • c. milk
  • ¼ c. water
  • dash cumin


  • Start by combining all of the ingredients in a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. Place this in the microwave and cook for 5 minutes, making sure to stop and stir every minute. If the dip needs an extra 60 seconds or so in the microwave, go for it. It will start out thin but should thicken as it melts. Serve and enjoy!
