Queso dip is a must have dip at any party. It’s so easy to make your own homemade Queso that you will be skipping the restaurant, whipping up your own pico and 7 layer dip, and tossing out the Queso for your next appetizer tray.
There are so many kinds of Queso dips. From the chili con Queso to the chipotle Quesos, you can dress this dip up any way, and any spice, you personally prefer.
This Queso recipe is a simple but powerful one.
Hoards of delicious and melty cheese, balanced with onion and garlic,with a hint of tomato.
Personally I don’t think you have to get fancy to have a good time, so put on your stretchy pants and lets get cooking.
Note: I have noticed an alarming trend when it comes to recipes. Many images don’t always tell the truth when they add ingredients.
This recipe has tomatoes and tomatoes have a sightly pink hue to them, so if you see Queso and tomatoes without the pink hue, they have been edited out. And why?
I don’t know because tomatoes are pretty much the best non veggie on the planet. If anything deserves to be folded into a tomato, its cheese dip. I just wanted to notice that when you compare this to other dips…if they are whiter but still have tomatoes, its either a lot less tomotoes, a lot more cheese, or fancy editing.

Queso Tips: This reheats well. I did leave it on my stove, it set/cooled. I reheated it on low when my husband arrived home and gave him some. It seemed to reheat just fine. Actually might have been a tad better in terms of the consistency/dipping ability after I reheated it.
Dietary: Serve with veggies to keep this Queso dip low carb
