Smoky White Queso Dip Recipe

Who dislikes melted cheese? This creamy treat is a crowd-pleaser in fondue, grilled cheese, or breaded. The Tex-Mex-style smokey white queso dip we're making today will take around 10 minutes to create.

1 tablespoon butter 1 small jalapeño, diced 1 clove garlic, minced ½ teaspoon smoked paprika ½ teaspoon chili powder ½ teaspoon kosher salt


2 tablespoons mezcal ¼ cup canned fire-roasted green chiles, drained ⅓ cup half-and-half ½ pound white American cheese, cubed 2 tablespoons sliced scallion Tortilla chips, for serving


Over medium heat, butter should be melted in a medium-sized pot. Add the garlic, jalapeno, paprika, chili powder, and salt to the mixture.

Prepare for one minute, stirring the mixture occasionally. Mix in some mezcal. Cook, stirring, for around two minutes, until the mezcal has evaporated.

The green chilies, the half-and-half, and the cheese should be added. Cook for three to four minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is completely melted.
