This restaurant style Queso Dip is an easy recipe that’s creamy and delicious!
One of my favorite things about Mexican restaurants is the chips. There is just something about the instant gratification that comes with a basket full of still-warm homemade tortilla chips. Heaven.
And, while I love the homemade salsa that usually accompanies them, I seem to always splurge on a side of queso dip.
I *heart* queso dip. Like BIG, puffy hearts.
What’s not to love? Essentially, it’s a big bowl of melty, ooey, gooey cheese lightly flavored with chilis.
I’m telling you, it’s divine.
And, it’s super easy to make this luscious queso dip at home. All you need are a few easy ingredients that you an find in any supermarket.
And, viola! Queso dip!
You use it as a dip for chips or veggies. Or you can add it to your favorite Mexical recipes like burritos, enchiladas or tacos.
Or, you can step a bit outside of the box and put it on burgers, fries or big bowl of broccoli. Just sayin’. It’s not like I’ve done it or anything.
