A queso dip made with real cheese that’s velvety, rich, and has a mild hint of spice, that’s what I’m talking about. Best part about this dip (besides the flavor) is how you can add this dip to a list of recipes. Pasta- yes! Nachos- duh! pizza- sure thing! Tacos- that’s a given!
This super simple queso is ready in 20 minutes, and requires only one pan/skillet. When life is busy this minimal ingredient dip can turn boring dinner into fun dinner. Made with chipotle adobo sauce, cheese, cream cheese, red peppers, onion, and of course a few spices. It’s a creamy, cheesy, dip you will for sure double dip in!
