Queso Blanco dip is a warm and gooey white cheese dip with green chilies that is cooked in the crock pot. This delicious cheese dip is the ultimate party snack. It also goes great in tacos and burritos!
I have to apologize for the massive amounts of Mexican food I’ve been posting lately, but I just can’t help myself. 😉 (and no I’m not pregnant!) This Crock Pot Queso Blanco Dip is one of the latest recipes we enjoyed and it was spectacular!
Warm gooey white cheese with green chilies slow cooks in the crock pot. This stuff is really really amazing. I made it the same day we had our Honey Lime Chicken Tacos, and boy oh boy, we were happy eaters that day. I actually poured a little of this cheese on my taco and was loving every bite. Of course, it was yummy dipping tortilla chips in it too.
This recipe makes a lot, so we saved some in the fridge for the next day and it was just as good! All you’ll need to do is heat it in the microwave with a little milk. Easy peasy!

Yum! I love a good queso. This sounds and looks amazing!
Thanks, Rina! It really is so good, you need to try it 🙂
I looked at Safeway & the Commisary and could not find white American cheese. What stores do you find this at?
I bought my White American cheese at Walmart’s deli.
Safeway has a variety of white cheddar blocks in the deli.
I buy the white American Cheese from Food Lion
I’m from Texas so this queso was bland by our standards but easily remedied. I added an extra can of diced green chiles and half a 4 oz can of diced jalapeño and it was great. I also thought that it was still too thick with only a few tablespoons of milk so I added about 1/2 cup and that did the trick. I’ll be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!
Thanks I’m going to add shredded chicken
Next time lets start with your recipe and see how many people like it the Texas way. Everyone is quick to claim their recipe is better and not put in their own work ’cause they are scared of being rejected but they are quick to reject others. Have some compassion Ashley she was just sharing not competing in a cooking contest.
This was awesome!!!! Used a lot more jalapeño and milk. Great super easy recipe.
This looks wonderful! I’ll have to try this.
If you can’t find White American cheese is it necessary or will traditional work too?
Haven’t tried this yet but I think I would want to use Monterey Jack rather than American. Wondering if the melting qualities & consistency would be the same, or no?
I think the consistency wouldnt be as a good as the american. I think it would still taste great, just maybe not be as creamy.
what about the velveeta brand white cheese?
You slay me woman, LEFT OVERS?!?!?! In what world? Great recipe, thank you for sharing. CHEERS, CC
If I can’t find white American, do you think the Velveeta white American would work?
I’m making this right now, I’m so excited it looks so yummy!! ^_^
This tasted just like the restaurant style! I did have to add a bit more milk, was very thick and sticky without it. I probably added 1/2 cup and then when I reheated it, I added another splash of milk. It was delicious over barbecue nachos!
FYI…every grocery store with a deli has white American cheese. Every grocery store in the South, that is! Recipe sounds great, and I will try it! I have tried many queso dip recipes and have found that adding a little cumin sends it over the top. Just a small suggestion…
How much does this make? Or how many people does it feed? Thanks.
Hi Katelyn. This recipe should feed around 8 to 10 people! Hope you enjoy it!
Hi Holly! When you put the ingredients in the crock pot, do you leave as is and let melt, or try to mix together at the beginning?
Just leave it until it starts to melt, then you can mix it! 🙂
Sounds yummy! What size crock pot did you use?
I believe mine is a 7 quart. 🙂
I’ve been making white queso w/ chilies for 30 years and my all time favorite cheese to use is Land O’Lakes white American. I’ve never used cream cheese, just the cheese, chilies, cream, a bit of salt. The cream cheese makes it way too sweet for our family’s preferences.
I made this tonight for a make-your-own nacho bar and it was devoured within a couple of minutes! It’s super easy and so tasty. Thanks for the recipe!
Super tasty!! We added a second can of 4oz chiles and that was perfect for us! This would also be a great base for a warm spinach and artichoke dip! Totally going to try that next time we make this! Thanks! 🙂
I made this and it turned out awesome!! I missed the part about finding the cheese in the deli and ended up getting individual wrapped slices. It turned out well except it had a hard time melting because I doubled the recipe and all the cheese slices stuck together! Great recipe and super easy. I had Mexican food at a birthday party and it was perfect!
Leftovers can be stored for 1 day? Is that an error? I’d love to make this to go with your breakfast tacos but don’t want to waste it.
I kept it at least a week and it was fine
Hi Holly. Thanks for a great recipe. I made this for our movie night this past Sunday and everyone enjoyed it. It was a great base for adding other things in. I added some cumin/comino (to taste), garlic powder (to taste) and then on the side had some scallions (the green only) and salsa to add as well. This will for sure be a staple where quesos are concerned lol. Thanks again.
Do you drain the chiles?
Does the recipe call for pickled or fresh jalapeño?
can you use white cheddar cheese in place of the white american?
Can you used a can of rotel instead of CUTTING own JALAPEÑOS and green chIlies?
Yes, I am sure that would work fine
This dip is critical for superbowl! I did double the chili’s and topped with chorizo. This will be a standard in our house from now on!
I like to Use habAnero instead of jalapeno
I can wait to make this!! My boys and husband Will be so surprised. We love cheese dip and mexican food. Thank you for sharing!
Can you make this recipe on stove if I don’t have crock pot ?
Hi Susanna, yes, you can do this on the stove top. Just follow the instructions, but using a large pot. Cook on low heat and stir until everything melts together.
I added 2-3 T of FRANK’S , in addition to the Jalapeno’s, to spice it up. AND 8 T of MILK to get the consistency I wanted. it is perfect for chips, loaded nachos or HORSESHOES. this will be my go-to recipe.
