Queso Blanco

Queso Blanco is a white dipping sauce served in many restaurants with chips or hot flour tortillas for dipping. This is a basic recipe that uses 'Jack' for the TexMex version and Chihuahua and/or Asadero for the more traditional Mexican version.


  • 1 cup cheese (Monterey jack, Asadero or Chihuahua), shredded fine
  • 4 ounces green chiles
  • 1/4 cup Half-and-Half
  • 2 tablespoons onion, chopped fine
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Serrano pepper, chopped fine (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped fine (optional)


  1. Put all ingredients in a double boiler and heat on medium. Cook until melted and well blended, stirring occasionally.
  2. Serve with fresh tostadas or hot flour tortillas.
