Whipped Queso Dip – Recipe!

Print Friendly

There’s a restaurant chain here in Southern, CA called Bandera and they have the best cold Queso.  It is lightly spicy, but not overly hot with a creamy texture and served with crunchy tortilla chips  and a side scoop of guacamole.  I literally can’t stop thinking about it most days, so I thought I would make my own at home.

My version of this spectacular dip – Whipped Queso Dip has two kinds of cheese, a jalapeno and a dash of hot sauce.  The prep is easy, my only suggestion is please grate your own cheddar cheese and don’t buy that tasteless pre-shredded stuff, it really does make a difference.  You can serve this with restaurant style tortilla chips or carrots & celery, but come on, if you are indulging on queso – go with the chips.

Ingredients

8 ounces cheddar cheese, shred your own

4 ounce cream cheese

1 small jalapeno

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon hot sauce

Tortilla Chips

(Serves 4)

To Prepare:

1. Slice the jalapeno and remove the cream cheese from any packaging.  Place all the ingredients, except the hot sauce in a food processor.

2.  Puree the cheese mixture until almost smooth, about 1 minute.  Add the hot sauce and puree again for 30 seconds.

3.  Spoon on a serving platter and serve with your favorite tortilla chips and maybe a skinny jalapeno margarita.   Enjoy!
