WHAT IS QUESO DIP?
Queso dip—sometimes called chile con queso—is a velvety, melted cheese fondue typically served alongside tortilla chips. This Tex-Mex dip has been around in some form for more than a century in the U.S., but today, queso can take on a variety of forms. It’s typically flecked with flavorful ingredients like jalapeno, garlic, chili powder and tomatoes, but can be customized to suit a wide variety of flavor palates. Most queso dips use white or yellow American cheese, which melts easily, and may incorporate colby jack, pepper jack or monterey jack cheese to add unique flavors or textures.
