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. Pop all the ingredients in your slow cooker, and three to four hours later, you’re ready to start dipping. Okay, I may have sampled a few bites before it was even completely done. Quality control! I purposely stayed away from Velvetta cheese in this recipe and achieved a nice smooth texture with low, slow heat and a mixture of cheeses with cream cheese and milk to keep this nice and dipable.

Old El Paso Mild Green Chiles give this dip great flavor without overwhelming you with spice. I added a little extra spice with Pepper Jack cheese but kept it tame by using half plain Monterey Jack cheese. If you like it 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 and then spritzing them with olive oil and crisping them up in a 350 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. They’ll make perfect little scoops for as much queso as your heart desires!

  1. I’m ALL about queso dip…. and doesn’t white queso somehow seem healthier than yellow? Whatever I have to tell myself to sit on the couch and eat this with a spoon, right?!

  2. This looks so creamy and delicious.

  3. How big does the crock pot need to be for this recipe?

  4. This sounds so amazing and easy. I really appreciate that there isn’t any Velveeta used because I am one of those rare people that actually HATE the stuff with a passion.

  5. I thought this would be a flop.  Seemed too simple.  But, oh my, was it good!  Restaurant-quality, in my opinion.  Thank you for sharing!

  6. Great queso! I didn’t have pepper jack cheese so used 2 monterey jacks instead. Compensated for the spice by adding 1-2T canned chipotle peppers (in adobo sauce), diced. This gave a delicious depth of smoky flavor & a good amount of spice. Easy to adjust to more spice with more chipotles, if desired. Didn’t have 4 hours. I cut up the cheeses into 1″-ish cubes in a large glass mixing bowl then microwaved at 40% power for 4 minutes. Poured all into my pre-heated 1-quart crock. Was ready in 2.5 hours. Loved it.
