Moe's Queso Dip

Queso Dip

 

  • 1/4 pound white American cheddar {available at the deli counter}
  • 1/8 pound {a couple standard slices} pepper jack cheese {use Monterey jack if you don’t want a lot of kick to your dip}
  • 1/4 cup white onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, diced
  • 1/16 tsp smoked cumin {or regular}
  • 1/8-1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/8 cup amber or dark beer {optional..and go ahead, drink the rest:smileywink:}
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  1. In a small sauce pan, sauté finely diced onion over medium heat until the onion starts to brown. Stir in jalapeno and cook a few more minutes.

  2. Rip the cheeses into smaller pieces and add to pot.

  3. Slowly pour in a small amount of milk and whisk into melting cheese. Add beer if using. Slowly add to milk/cheese until desired consistency is reached. Remember cheese will thicken quickly as it cools.

  4. Stir in cumin and olive oil. Don’t skip the oil- it helps it not solidify so fast when you’re using it as a dip.
