Homemade Queso

I really don’t like velveeta so when I would go to people’s homes for parties I often skipped the queso dip even though it is my favourite dip. So last year when I put together this queso dip for the first time I was so excited. This dip is so creamy and has fantastic flavour. I can’t wait for an excuse to bring it to a party.

Homemade Queso

1 small jalapeño, seeded and diced
1/2 onion, minced finely
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon butter
2 Tbsp flour
226g (8-ounce) cream cheese, softened
340g (12 oz) mild cheddar cheese, freshly grated


Over medium-low heat add butter, jalapeno, onion and garlic with a pinch of salt. Stir well to coat and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Turn the heat up to medium and add flour, stir to make a roux. After a few minutes, stir in softened cream cheese and continue stirring until it’s melted. Once it is creamy, add in the cheese, stirring again until melted and reducing the heat to low. Serve warm. In order to reheat you might want to add a small amount of milk.

    I have never even thought to make my own queso! Your ingredients sound great, and I bet this tastes WAY better than anything over-processed! I can’t wait to make this.
