3 Ingredient White Queso

This white queso dip recipe is pulled together with just three ingredients! Mexican white cheese dip is a favorite in our house and I think it will be in yours too.

Just three ingredients and NO VELVEETA! My kids agree that this white cheese dip tastes just like the kind from our favorite Mexican restaurant!

Let’s talk.

You know when you go out for Mexican and they bring you chips and salsa and you’re, like, the happiest person on Earth, because free chips and salsa! Life doesn’t get any better.

Except let’s be real. Life totally gets better when they bring out that creamy smooth white cheese dip. It’s totally okay if you’re the type of person to request a straw to drink your cheese with. I’m right there with you. We can be cheese drinkers together.

Well, when I was in high school one of my friends made me cheese dip using a couple of slices of orange American cheese and a little milk melted together on the stove. It was divine and I was instantly hooked. Then I grew up and forgot all about that recipe.

Until, that is, people started talking about how the white queso dip recipe from Mexican joints is just melted white American cheese. Light bulb moment, guys.

I used my high school friend’s super easy method of creating cheese sauce and I am now in major trouble, dipping every last thing I can find in this Mexican white cheese dip. Life is so delicious.

Since there is a big football game coming up soon, I thought I’d share the recipe with you!

I figured it would be the perfect recipe to share as part of my partnership with José Olé! Their Mexican snacks are such a great option for football games. You toss them in the oven and know that what comes out is going to be crunchy Mexican snack-time goodness.

I love love love the spicy, cheesy filling in the Beef Taquitos. The outsides are so crispy and the filling is packed with protein for all of your hungry football fans (or, let’s be real, teen boys who raid your kitchen every day after school). The Chicken & Cheese Flour Taquitos are the perfect choice for those who like things a little more mild.

And, of course, both of the flavors are divine dipped in my white queso dip and/or guacamole.

So, here’s the scoop on this cheese dip – you’re going to want to hit up your deli counter and ask for a half pound of white American cheese. I just get it in sandwich slices, but you could ask for a block of it and grate it at home if you like. Sandwich slices work surprisingly well though!

I don’t recommend purchasing the white cheese in individual wrappers with the rest of the American cheese. I’m not sure it would have nearly as authentic of a taste as the deli counter cheese does.

Also, feel free to spice this up with some tomatoes and chilis or some diced jalapeno. I kept it simple and classic with a tiny sprinkle of taco seasoning.
