Queso dip is hands-down one of my biggest weaknesses. I mean, who can resist melty cheese on a salty chip? This white queso is irresistible, just like my Mexican Spinach Dip or the beautifully colored healthy queso dip with butternut squash. The subtly sweet flavor of that one is to die for…have you guys tried it yet?

This queso blanco is perfect for upcoming Cinco de Mayo festivities. You can make it ahead and it’s ready when you are. Pop all the ingredients in your slow cooker, and three to four hours later, you’re ready to start dipping. You’ll probably want to sample a few bites now and then before it’s completely done. Quality control, right?

I purposely stay away from Velvetta cheese in this recipe and achieve a nice smooth texture with low, slow heat and a mixture of cheeses with cream cheese and milk to keep this queso nice and dippable.

Old El Paso Mild Green Chiles give this dip great flavor without overwhelming you with spiciness. I add a little extra heat with Pepper Jack cheese but since I don’t like things super hot, I keep it pretty tame by using half plain Monterey Jack cheese. If you like queso on the spicier side, go for all Pepper Jack instead of 50/50 mix. The rich flavors of the cheese are brightened up with green onions and cilantro.

PS: If you really want to get serious with your dipping, which I fully support, try cutting Old El Paso Mini Taco Boats in half, spritzing the halves with olive oil, and crisping them up in a 350°F oven for about 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. They’ll make perfect little scoops for as much queso as your heart desires!
