white cheese dip

I know it's really TexMex, but does anyone know how to recreate the white creamy cheese dip with a kick that is ubiquitious to TexMex restaurants in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and possibly Tennessee? It may be more widespread now. Mostly they call it cheese dip or queso, and it's much better than the yellow stuff.

    It is called "Queso Blanco" and is made with Asadero cheese vs. the yellow types.

    I am not sure if this is what you are talking about, but the white dip you describe sounds a lot like queso fundido. It is an appetizer of baked melted cheese that can be plain, but is usually served with chorizo on top. I am not positive what type of cheese is used, but it tastes like a chihuaha or ranch-style mild cheese. (whatver it is, it is delicioso!)

    Wingster, I have had many a queso fundido as part of the meal at the famous border fajita palaces (the queso as appetizer, a kilo or two of meat served with grilled onions, borracho beans, guacamole, and tortillas) but this cheese dip is different in that it is creamy rather than stringy. It's white or close to it, with a little pepper zing, hard to tell what's in it. I'll have to try the recipes on the site Lonestar provided. Love fundido though!

    BTW, welcome Wingster!

    O.K. The website did click in now, perhaps this morning the site was busy or something. It just would not click in.

    I tried this see what you think!!
    I am pleased to share this recipe w/you, as I experimented for weeks..... We, too, have a Mexican Resaurant that serves this w/chips before your meal and love it!!!
    I wanted this recipe and nobody has it. If you have found a different version, please share!


    Microwave in a dish on med/high for about 2 min.

    1 cup Queso Quesadilla cheese (found in dairy and round)
    dash of green jalepeno pepper sauce to taste
    sprinkle or two of dried, minced onions
    dash of salt
    fresh ground pepper
    1/2 cup milk

    You can add more milk to thin it out a bit. It tends to thicken upon standing.

    Let me know what you think!!

    Missy I tried your recipe and think it's good, but the cubed pepper jack and cream cheese seems to be closer to the restraunt kind try it out and let me know what you think.

    I have tried several recipes for the white dip and the best that I came up with is: using equal portions of cubed pepper jack cheese and philidelphia cream cheese microwave until soft enough to blend add a little milk and microwave for 45 sec. stir. Add a little more milk and microwave 45 sec. stir. repeat until desired consistancy.
    You might need to microwave more to get it smooth. It's so close to restraunt dip that I can't taste the differance.

    Most of the Mexican restaurants use white American Cheese... Thats all.. Just add chopped jalopenos and half and half, melt in the microwave.
