Tips To Perfect Queso

How To Keep Queso From Separating

Queso can separate, so here are our tips to keep your queso velvety smooth if you have any problems with your queso breaking.

  • Make a roux with flour or a cornstarch slurry and stir in to queso – starch helps to keep fat from separating.
  • Stir in an emulsifier – mustard powder helps.

Shred The Cheese

We always recommend chopping, shredding, or even tearing cheese apart to make more surface area so cheese can melt quickly and more evenly.

What Cheese To Use For Queso

There are some cheeses that work beautifully in queso – cheese that has the right fat and moisture content to melt, without seizing up or getting too oily.

  • Oaxaca
  • Enchilado
  • Quesadilla
  • Mozzarella
  • White cheddar
  • Cheddar cheese

We love crumbling a little cotija cheese (preferably very cold, gives a great temperature twist when eating) on top of queso – but since it doesn’t melt well, we use it more as a topping than the creamy cheese base.

Other Delicious Dips You’ll Love

If you love dunking wings, chips, and vegetables in dip, we’re sharing some of our favorites.

We love spinach and artichoke dip and homemade blue cheese dip, as well as well as fresh and flavorful twists like avocado tomatillo salsa, pineapple mango salsa, and cheesy bacon dip!

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced

  3. Remove beef from pan and set aside.
  4. Add olive oil to pan and scrape up any browned bits of beef as oil heats, until light and shimmery.
  5. Add diced onion and bell pepper to pan and cook until soft and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
  6. Toss shredded cheese in cornstarch.
  7. Stir in green chile sauce and shredded cheese, being sure to vigorously stir as cheese melts.
