How to Make Homemade Queso/Cheese Dip

Save

Queso dip is a classic party appetizer when served alongside tortilla chips. While you could just open a jar of store-bought cheese dip and microwave it, making your own from scratch will allow you to customize the flavor. Queso dip typically features a Mexican twist, such as the addition of hot peppers or salsa. Serve the cheese dip warm for the best flavor and a creamy texture. If you want to keep the dip warm over a long period of time, place it in a fondue pot and allow party guests to spoon some onto their plates.
