Hey everyone! I apologize for not posting in over a month! ( 😮 ) It’s been a bit busy around here, with the holidays, (By the way, hope everyone had a great Christmas/New Year!) and my Aunt just moved into a new house, so lots of moving and organizing has been going on. Anyway, I’m here now, so yay! 🙂
So, you know that DELICIOUS white cheese dip you get at Mexican restaurants? Have you every thought, “Wow I wish I could make this at home!” Well, you can! And added bonus, it’s super easy! 😉 I was very happy to find this recipe online, and it turned out really yummy.
Store in the fridge in a plastic container. To reheat, put it in the microwave with one teaspoon of water for 30 seconds. Stir and add another teaspoon of water if you need to. Heat 30 seconds at a time until hot. (I haven’t tried that part yet. I just made this today, and I ate some and put the rest in the fridge, and I haven’t gotten a chance to try the microwave)
Original recipe here
Crockpot Queso Blanco Dip
- 8oz block cream cheese cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 lb white American cheese cut in 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 tablespoon salted or unsalted butter
- 1 4oz can green chiles
- 2 tablespoons cilantro finely chopped (optional)
- 1 tablespoon jalapeños finely minced (optional)
- 3-4 tablespoons milk
- 3-4 tablespoons water
In a crockpot combine the cream cheese, American cheese, butter, green chiles, cilantro and jalapeños (If you’re using those last two ingredients). Cook on high for 30 minutes. Stir the mixture until well combined and then add a tablespoon of milk and water at a time until it’s as thick as you want. Cook for another 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is completely melted and give it another good stir until it’s all combined.
Keep cheese dip in the slow cooker on the warm setting until ready to serve. (Although If you let it sit too long, it will get a top layer of thicker cheese)
Store leftovers in the refrigerator in a plastic container. To warm, place in the microwave with 1 teaspoon of water for 30 seconds. Stir and add another teaspoon of water if needed. Heat 30 seconds at a time until hot.

Hope you enjoyed the recipe! How was everyone’s holidays? I can’t believe that tomorrow is the first day of February! This year is already going so fast! The day after tomorrow is my dog’s 6th birthday. It really amazes me that I’ve already had him 5 1/2 years! Or a little less…not sure exactly when I got him… I know it’s been over 5 years. 😀 And one of my cats will be 6 in March, and my other one will be three in May! 😮 Slow down, Time!! 😉
Well, now that I’m done with my rant against time, I shall say goodbye. 🙂
Have a wonderful week!!
