Queso Dip

So you’re already making tacos and invited a friend over to enjoy them with you. We love that for you. Now it’s time to step up your menu with some indulgent southwestern-style queso dip. If you’ve ever wanted to recreate that restaurant experience, this is the recipe for you. Unlike what it tastes like (straight up delicious melted cheese), there’s a couple more steps involved to get that perfect cheese dip consistency. Now you have the secret. It’s okay if you share it. 



What You'll Need


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • One 7-ounce can of salsa casera
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • Tortilla chips


Step 1

Turn the Perfect Power Pot™ on to Level 1 (low heat) and add in butter. When butter is melted, whisk in the flour with a silicone whisk. Whisk slowly until the butter and flour have combined and look like wet sand.

Step 2

Whisk in taco seasoning and salt. Whisk in a can of salsa. Continue whisking until liquid begins to thicken, then whisk in milk. 

Step 3

When liquid begins to thicken in the pot, stir in the cheese. Place the glass lid on the pot until it is completely melted, stirring occasionally. 

Step 4

When cheese is completely melted, turn the pot off. Serve with chips. To keep the cheese warm, turn the heat on Level 1 (low heat) occasionally.
