Restaurant Style Queso Blanco

Sticking with the Mexican theme! This queso is so delicious, just like what you would get in a restaurant and is simple to make. The key to the smooth, gooey cheese dip is white American cheese. I just used a pack of white American singles, torn into pieces, but you can also get it from your deli counter. Recipe from Confections of a Foodie Bride.


Ingredients:
1 Tbsp cooking oil (like vegetable or canola)
1/4 cup white onion, diced
1 large jalapeno or serrano, seeds and stem removed; diced
12 oz white American cheese, shredded
4 oz Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded (optional; don’t use pre-shredded)
1/4-2/3 cup cream, half-and-half, or whole milk
1 roma tomato, seeds removed and diced
1 small bunch cilantro, roughly chopped

Directions:
Heat the oil in a saute pan. Cook the onion and pepper until softened and reduce heat to medium-low. Add the shredded cheese and 1/4 cup of the cream. Stir until mostly melted. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, and additional cream a little at a time until you reach desired consistency.

Serve with chips or fresh tortillas.

You are so speaking my language with this cheese dip. I could probably eat the entire bowl myself without question.
