White Queso Dip is the BEST cheese dip you will ever make!


  • 1/4 cup white onion finely minced
  • 3/4 pounds white American cheese torn into 1 inch pieces
  • 4 ounces Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 links of Chorizo sausage casings removed, cooked and chopped to resemble ground beef
  • 1 slice jalapeno optional for garnish
  • Tortilla chips


  1. Place all cheeses and onion into a food processor and pulse several times to mix. The finer the mixture, the cleaner and smoother it will melt.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter and then add the cheese mixture through whole milk over medium heat. Continuously whisk the mixture until it is fully melted and smooth (maybe a few small bumps from the onions). Do not heat too high or keep it over heat.
  3. Whisk in salt and pepper.
  4. While still hot, transfer cheese to a serving bowl, top with diced chorizo (some will sink). Garnish with jalapeno. You can stir in the sausage to combine. Serve with tortilla chips.
