Chipotle Queso Dip

Ingredients

2 tbsps unsalted butter

2 tbsps all-purpose flour

1.5 cups cups milk, warm

8 oz grated cheese, cheddar and/or pepper jack

1 14.5 ounce can Muir Glen® Fire-Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Peppers

Salt and pepper

Tortilla chips for serving

A simple, but flavorful queso dip that’s a perfect appetizer for a cold winter day. 

Preparation & Directions

  1. Using a fine metal colander or sieve, drain Muir Glen® Fire-Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Peppers. Shake them a few times to remove as much liquid as possible from the tomatoes.
  2. In a medium pot over medium-low heat, add the butter and let melt. Once melted, add flour and whisk. Cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes until flour starts to turn a light tan color.
  3. Slowly whisk in warm milk. Be careful not to add milk too quickly or lumps might  form in your sauce. Once your milk is whisked in, let mixture thicken for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Stir in grated cheese and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. 

  5.  When cheese is thoroughly melted and sauce is thick and creamy, stir in drained  Muir Glen® Fire-Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Peppers. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
