We like to use Velveeta Queso Blanco for this one.

You can use regular Velveeta as well, we like the Blanco the best because of the flavor. 

Feel free to switch it up, using Velveeta for this recipe is key because it really makes it nice and creamy!

Yes! If you are a huge fan of spice, then you will want to use the spicier Rotel instead of the milder one.

I always love a good, homemade queso dip. Even if it’s all the same ingredients, homemade is better.

  • Cooked ground beef or chorizo: Add a hearty, protein-packed twist to your queso, making it perfect for game day or a filling taco Tuesday side.
  • Diced jalapeños: Spice up your dip with fresh or pickled jalapeños for a burst of heat.
  • Black beans: Stir in for added texture and a nod to traditional Mexican cuisine.
  • Monterey Jack or pepper jack cheese: Blend with Velveeta for a complex, cheesy flavor with a spicy kick.
  • Cream cheese: Incorporate for an irresistibly creamy texture, ideal for a luxurious dipping experience.
  • Cayenne pepper or chipotle queso: Add a sprinkle for a smoky, fiery depth.
  • Green chiles or green onions: Mix in for a subtle crunch and fresh flavor.
  • Corn kernels: Stir in for a sweet contrast to the savory cheese.
  • Splash of heavy cream: Use to create a richer, smoother queso dip.
  • Cilantro or onion powder: Add for enhanced flavor and freshness, making it a favorite at any Mexican restaurant.

Mix and match with this easy queso blanco recipe. There are plenty of different types of cheese out there!

  • White American cheese for Velveeta Queso Blanco: Swap for a smoother melt and a milder flavor profile, often found in authentic Mexican recipes.
  • Sour cream for heavy cream: Substitute to add tanginess and creaminess, perfect for balancing the flavors.
  • Evaporated milk for whole milk: Use for a richer, thicker base without diluting the cheesy goodness.
  • Yellow American cheese for a different type of cheese: Opt for a classic melty texture with a slightly sharper taste.
  • Homemade queso blanco recipe elements for store-bought items: Create your own blend for a more personalized touch.
  • Onion powder for fresh onions: Use for convenience without sacrificing the savory depth, ideal for quick snack preparations.
