Slow Cooker White Queso Green Chile Dip

Slow Cooker White Queso Green Chile Dip {Queso Blanco}

This dip is effortless to make with two minutes of sauteing being the most time consuming part! Mild, creamy cheese studded with diced green chiles, jalapeno, red onion and garlic make a flavorful dip perfect for dipping almost anything. Keep it warm in the slow cooker to serve so the cheese does not solidify. Asadero Mexican cheese is an authentic variety used in making Queso Blanco. Should you not be able to find it, try substituting White Cheddar which though not authentic to the dish is more readily available.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup Flour (gluten-free or regular All Purpose Flour; I used King Arthur’s Gluten-Free Blend)
  • 2 12-ounce packages Asadero Cheese , cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 8-ounce package Cream Cheese or Neufchatel Cheese (Neufchatel is has 1/3 less fat)
  • 2 4-ounce cans Mild Diced Green Chilies , drained
  • 1 Jalapeno Chile Pepper (approximately 3-inches long ¾ inch diameter), seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Chopped Red Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves , diced
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • Suggested ‘dippers’: multi-colored Corn Chips , wide slices of colorful Sweet Peppers, carrot sticks, celery sticks, bread sticks, small corn tortillas

Instructions

  1. Spray the insert of a 4 quart (or higher) slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl toss the Asadero cheese cubes with the flour and add to the slow cooker.
  3. Also add the cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese, green chilies, and jalapeno.
  4. In a skillet melt the butter and sauté the onion and garlic only until they begin to soften (a few minutes). Add them to the slow cooker.
  5. Pour the milk over the mixture in the slow cooker. Cook on LOW temperature for 2 hours, stirring periodically to combine the ingredients as the cheese melts.

To serve:

  1. The dip is best served in a slow cooker to keep the cheese from solidifying.
