Best Mexican White Queso Recipe

– Wooden Spoon – Cheese Grater – Serving Dish – Can Opener


– 12 ounces evaporated milk – 1 tablespoon cornstarch – 3/4 lb white American cheese – 4 ounces mozzarella cheese freshly shredded – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


– chopped cilantro tomatoes, and jalapenos for garnish – 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes – 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg optional – 1 teaspoon chili powder – 2 tablespoons canned jalapenos chopped, or chopped green chiles


1. Heat 12 ounces of evaporated milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and whisk it in. 2. Let it simmer until it's just about to boil – you'll see it bubbling up the sides. Then, quick! Reduce the heat to low.


3. Stir in 3/4 lb of white American cheese in batches. Keep the heat at medium/low and whisk constantly as each batch melts. Don't stop until it's all melted and creamy. 4. Once the white American cheese is in, add 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella. Keep whisking for that dreamy, creamy blend. Want it thicker? Toss in a bit more Mozzarella.


5. Pour your queso into a skillet and pop it in the oven. Broil for 3-4 minutes until that cheese starts to bubble and brown 6. Garnish with chopped cilantro, tomatoes, and more jalapenos if you're feeling extra.
