Homemade Queso Dip with Real Food Ingredients

(Pictured with Crispy Baked Chicken Skins)

This homemade queso dip is made with real food ingredients.  It's great with crispy baked chicken skins or your favorite chip (I like the Siete brand grain free tortilla chips).

Queso Dip

  • 2 T. butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 jalapenos, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar or jack cheese

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Saute onions and jalapenos until tender.

Add garlic and spices and saute briefly until fragrant.

Add milk, cream cheese, and salt and stir until incorporated.

Add the shredded cheese and stir until it is melted. Immediately remove from heat.

Serves 4-5.
