Queso Blanco Recipe


Essential Slow Cooker RecipesQueso Blanco is a spicy, melty cheese dip, and it’s always popular. In fact, this was a regular part of my diet while I was in high school. My girlfriends and I used to head over to a local restaurant and eat bottomless bowls of chips. Fast-forward to today and I do my best to re-create that delicious appetizer we induldged in so often. The recipe can easily be doubled, or even tripled, for a larger crowd.
