White Queso Dip
You would think they used white cheddar, right? Nope! It just doesn’t melt right for a Queso dip and tends to be oily. So white American cheese to the rescue!
There is no cream cheese, Velveeta, or evaporated milk in this recipe!
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat add the white American cheese, 1/2 cup of milk, butter, green chilies, pickled jalapenos, cumin, garlic, and cayenne.
Warm gently until the cheese is melted and combined, stirring frequently. You made need to add another 1/4 cup of milk to achieve the desired consistency. ( we used a total of 3/4 cup)
This process takes some time so just be patient and stir often.
