Queso Blanco Dip
1 1/4 pound block White American Cheese,* cut into 1-inch cubes (Land O'Lakes brand preferred)
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapenos
2 tablespoons pickled jalapeno juice
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup cold water
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
Place cubed cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Add chiles, jalapenos, jalapeno juice, milk, water, and cumin. Microwave on HIGH for 4 - 5 minutes, stopping to stir well after each minute. Part of the melting process is completed with the stirring.
Serve immediately with tortilla chips or can be used as a sauce for Mexican dishes. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave in increments of 30 seconds until creamy and hot.
*White American cheese is usually available at the deli counter of most grocery stores.
I found the Land O'Lakes white American cheese at my grocery store deli.
Cut the cheese into cubes before mixing with the other ingredients.
This cheese dip is the perfect consistency and is great with chips, a keeper of a recipe for sure.
