Best White Queso Dip Recipe

I don’t know about you, but whenever I hit my favorite Mexican restaurant, I can’t say no to white queso dip. That stuff is totally addictive. It’s just so dang good.

Every time I order queso at a restaurant, I think to myself, “I should really just start making this stuff at home!” So finally, I made myself the ultimate homemade queso dip recipe, and I’m sharing it with you here today!

Whether it’s game day and we need all the dips or it’s just a simple family taco night, this white queso dip is always a big hit. It makes a great bonus topping for tacos or taco salads! (I love to serve it with our Walking Taco Bar and our Chicken Enchiladas!)

Ingredients

  • White American cheese
  • Milk
  • Green chilies – I use green chilies in my recipe here, I like to use a mild chili so it won’t be too spicy for anyone who isn’t a fan of spice! However, if you are a fan of spicy food then you can use hot salsa instead! You could also choose to chop up jalepeños to make it even spicier!
  • Taco seasoning
White Queso Dip Ingredients

How To Make White Queso Dip

  1. Melt the cheese and milk in a saucepan over medium to low heat until cheese has melted.
  2. Remove it from heat and add green chilies and taco seasoning and mix it all together.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips, pretzels, or vegetables.
  4. (optional): You can top the queso dip with the pico de gallo (recipe listed in notes of the recipe card below) just mix together all of the ingredients from the pico de gallo and use it as a topping for the dip.

What to Serve With Queso Dip

I love that this dip can be so versatile. There are many things you can pair it with that taste just as delicious as your classic tortilla chips. We love to serve it with:

  • Chips: Tortilla chips, pretzels, pita chips
  • Veggies: celery sticks, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, zucchini rounds, bell pepper strips, whole mushrooms
  • Fruits: sliced green apples, pears, and grapes.

How to Reheat Dip

There’s a pretty good chance that you won’t have any queso dip leftover. I’m not joking when I say this stuff is so dang good. It’s hard not to eat it all up. But, if you do happen to have leftovers you can simply store it in an air-tight container in your fridge.

To Reheat: Simply toss it in the microwave and heat. I usually put it in the microwave for 30-second increments and take it out to stir between each 30-second interval. When it reaches the consistency I like, it’s ready to eat!

Make sure that if you are adding the pico de gallo, that you do so at the end when it’s finished heating up!

Tip

This queso dip is best when it’s served very hot, right away! It’s definitely a dish that is better when it’s served fresh. But, as I mentioned above it can also be reheated.

Queso Dip Variations

There are a variety of ways you could doctor up your queso recipe and make it your own.

  • Option 1: Add meat! You can simply add in about a half a pound of ground hamburger or chorizo.
  • Option 2: Add beans to make a bean and cheese dip. You can use any beans of your choice, but I like to use black beans. To do this, rinse one cup of beans and add to your queso.
