The Best Queso Blanco…
Here in Arizona, there is a Mexican restaurant that is one of the best there is, in my opinion. It is ALWAYS busy, and has one of the best versions of Queso Blanco Dip I have ever tried. I was determined to figure out how to make it. We asked around and got some of the ingredients from the waiters and the husband and I spent the entire week making and remaking it.
This recipe was originally posted in January 2013, and since then, I have added and changed the recipe at least twice. I wanted it to have the right kick. We whip this one back out of the archives when it is near Cinco De Mayo, which, as it turns out is also the day before my birthday. So it’s only fitting to share one of my favorite appetizers of all time!
The Making of a Queso Blanco Dip…
When I originally posted this recipe, it grew to be one of my top visited and tried recipe on the blog. We had a LOT of questions about how to make it. One tip you must know (that I sadly learned the hard way) is that you MUST use full fat half and half or cream. Anything less will make it disgusting. Don’t try it.

Yum, looks amazing! I may need to add this to the Superbowl menu!
OK what did I do wrong?? I followed the directions exactly except I didn't have half n half so I used milk. Mine looked like a big lump of cheese with a saucy liquid on top. It would not mix! I tried draining off the liquid and melting it but it just is not smooth and creamy! I shredded the cheese, added it gradually and stirred while it melted. It never would mix with the milk.
