A few days later, I set out to make a healthier, homemade version of this product that would have my husband drooling. After scouring the internet and taking bits and pieces from various recipes, I came up with this one. It takes about five minutes, and it’s sure to make you drool (if you like queso, that is).
After one bite, Mr. Handsome was sold. He said it was the best queso dip he has ever tasted and that it knocks Tostitos® out of the park.
Restaurant-Style Queso Blanco Dip
- 1/2 lb white American cheese*
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/3 cup whole milk
Cut cheese into bite-sized chunks, and put in a microwave safe bowl.
Add water and milk, and stir. Microwave for one minute, and then remove and stir.
Continue microwaving (stirring every minute) until cheese reaches desired consistency (approximately 4-6 minutes).
Serve as a dip with tortilla chips or drizzled over Mexican dishes.
Dip can be refrigerated and reheated, but be careful not to burn it.
*I used Land O’ Lakes, but it contains a few artificial ingredients (still much better than Tostitos queso dips), so I am on the lookout for an alternative.
