  • 10 ounces manchego cheese * see note
  • 3 tablespoons roasted green chiles
  • cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 9 ounces beef chorizo
  • ¼ cup chopped tomato
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions


  • Take a medium-sized saucepan and add cubed cheese, butter, cream, chiles, and salt. Cook on low heat until the cheese is melted.
  • In a frying pan, add raw chorizo and half the scallions. Cook over medium heat until the chorizo is done.
  • Pour the cheese into a bowl. Add the chorizo mixture in the middle of the melted cheese. Top with chopped tomatoes and the remaining scallions.


  1. You can stuff this white queso cheese dip with all sorts of delicious things. You can add grilled vegetables, chili, and even bacon.
  2. If you can't find manchego cheese, try cheddar, oaxaca, queso blanco, Monterey Jack, and Velveeta.
  3. This queso will keep up to 3 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
  4. To prevent your queso from thickening, keep it warm. The cheese will begin to harden as it cools.
  5. If you need to thin your queso dip, add a little bit of liquid and stir. Repeat until you have your desired consistency.
