Delicious Spicy Queso Blanco

I love this delicious spicy queso blanco, adapted from 40 Aprons. It’s quick to make and has such great flavor. And you can adjust the ingredients to your own taste!

The first time I made it, I found it too hot (Mr. Key Lime loved the spice!). But for me, it was a bit too hot. The next time I made it, I just reduced the amount of jalapeños and reduced the amount of jalapeño “juice” from the jar and I tasted less heat. You can experiment, because you will want to make this many times! It’s perfect for entertaining, good as a game day appetizer, and great for just keeping in the fridge to heat up for snacking.

To get the smoothness you want with a queso, you’ll need to use a high speed blender or food processor. You almost can’t blend or process this too long, it just gets smoother and creamier. Have plenty of chips on hand – you won’t be able to stop eating this queso!

I’m pretty sure you won’t have another party without this dip!
