Queso (Cheese) Dip


"This is the best queso dip! Being from Texas, I know my queso, and I think this is the one that beats them all! It's full of flavor and all fresh ingredients. You can substitute half-and-half for the heavy whipping cream, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Place poblano peppers, Anaheim peppers, and jalapeno pepper, cut-sides down, on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Cook peppers under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes. Place the blackened peppers into a bowl and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Allow the peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard skins; dice peppers.
  4. Combine diced peppers, cheese food cubes, tomatoes, onion, butter, and cumin in a slow cooker.
  5. Cook on Low, gradually adding cream, until cheese melts and dip is heated through, about 30 minutes.


  • Partner tip: Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I made this for a party and it was a huge hit. I followed the recipe pretty closely. The only difference was that I sauteed the onions and used jalapeno, Anaheim, and Serrano peppers because t...

The roasted peppers and the onions made this irresistibly tasty! I sauteed my onions out of personal preference. Followed the directions about the roasted peppers, but the skins didn't peel off...

This was great recipe. However next time I will leave the seeds in the jalapeno. Very mild. Will for sure make again. My kids loved it.

Nice, tasty and quick to assemble recipe. I will probably add less cumin in the next batch, but still quite nice all around. Followed the original recipe 100% the first time, make changes late...
