But I find that the forgotten ingredient in many gatherings are the snacks that fill the gaps between seated meals. This is where I rely on my smallest slow cooker and this recipe for Queso Blanco Dip.
|Queso Blanco Dip and Chips...ready for a party!|
1 - 16oz. pkg Queso Blanco cheese
1 can/jar of Mexican blend diced tomatoes, picante, salsa (Red Gold, or Rotel, for example)
1 can green chilies, if desired
*Depending upon personal taste, choose hot, mild, or traditional seasonings in the diced tomato blends. Thickness of the cheese dip can be managed by using an additional can of the blend.
1. Turn the slow cooker to High and spray crock with cooking spray.
2. Dice the cheese into cubes and place in cooker crock.
3. Pour can of diced tomatoes and diced green chilies over the cheese.
4. Stir and then cook until the cheese has completely melted.
I stir it from time to time, although its not recommended when using a slow cooker because of the loss of heat. I do it to keep any hot spots from forming that can cause the cheese to cook unevenly.
Serve on your favorite chips (we used white corn chips). I also like to use any leftovers on fajitas, taquitos, or Mexican casseroles as well. Nothing goes to waste.
