The Best Mexican White Cheese Dip Recipe
Our family loves this easy queso blanco recipe. It has become a tradition to serve it during any football game and on Taco Tuesdays around here. If I don’t serve this Mexican white cheese dip recipe with our tacos I’m going to have some upset children.
You can adjust the heat of theis Mexican Restaurant White Sauce by leaving out the cayenne pepper completely or by adding more. You can also give this white Mexican cheese dip a completely different flavor by adding in rotel instead of the green chillis. We have done it both ways and love it!

Mexican White Queso Dip Recipe:
This queso blanco recipe is very kid friendly and will be a nice surprise to your family gatherings. It is a nice change from the normal velveeta cheese dip.
Now, if you are wondering where to get the White American cheese, I suggest you go to your deli to buy it. Ask them to slice it for you, so you can crumble it into your saucepan and help it melt faster. You will be pleasantly surprised that white American cheese is actually better priced than Velveeta, plus it makes an amazing white queso dip. 😉
Make sure to use a double boiler:
Now to make your life easier, I highly recommend a double boiler to melt your cheese. It will go much smoother and will melt more evenly. Trust me… I’ve learned from experience! I actually found several that are on sale on Amazon in case you don’t have one – you can check them out here.
Now we normally will make this dip in the double boiler, and then we like to keep it warm in a mini dipper crockpot. We just love them because it keeps the dip warm and smooth.
