Queso Dip Creamy green chile queso blanco dip made with the perfect blend of cheeses, green chiles, fresh cilantro, and hot sauce. How to make the perfect homemade queso!
Heat a large skillet or pot over medium-low heat. Add butter and let melt. Drain the Rotel tomatoes and add to the skillet and saute for 1 minute. Sprinkle with salt.
Add half-n-half. Add only 1/4 of the American cheese at a time, stirring well after each addition. Once the American cheese is added, add 1/4 of the sharp cheddar cheese at a time. Stir often until completely melted.
Once the cheese is melted, stir in the green chiles. Cook for 5 minutes longer. The green chile flavor becomes stronger in time.
Serve warm with cilantro, hot sauce, and cotija cheese on top.
*The Boar's Head American cheese comes in white or yellow. If you want a white queso dip, I suggest picking up the white American cheese and using a pepper jack or Monterey cheese.
**slice the cheese into small chunks for easier melting
