Queso Blanco Dip


July 10, 2017 12:01 pm



This Queso Blanco Dip has just enough kick to keep things interesting, but it's mild enough for anyone to love. It's perfect for parties, tailgating, or just hanging out on the weekend. The salsa verde adds a certain chunkiness and heat, while the cream cheese and sour cream give it a smooth texture and a balance to the spice, giving it a full flavor, without an actual burn. If you're a spice lover, adding diced jalapea?os takes things up a notch. 

Ingredients:

Nesco® 1.5 QT. Slow Cooker
16 oz. cream cheese
32 oz. salsa verde (medium)
7 cloves minced garlic
3 cups sour cream
16 oz. package shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese
Chopped green onions for garnish
Tortilla chips or veggies for dipping

Combine all ingredients in Nesco Slow Cooker. Cook on Low heat for 3 hours, stirring every half hour. Dip is ready when all ingredients are heated through and well blended. Garnish and serve immediately.
