Homemade Queso


How can you start a Mexican food night without queso?!?  I wouldn't dare in my house!  This queso dip is a great cheat meal on the weekend and compliments our Veggie Tacos perfectly!  It's also a great dish for your man to make the boys watching football.  This recipe was created by my super stud fiance, Marek, while I was shooting my veggie tacos.  I just loved it so I had to add it to the mix.  It's so easy, you'll never want to order take-out queso again!

Homemade Queso


  • 2.5 ounces cheddar cheese or Velveeta (ask your cheese vendor for something organic that melts like velveeta)
  • 1 Tablespoon organic cream cheese
  • 1-2 Tablespoons coconut milk (depends on how creamy you like it)
  • 2 Tablespoons of your favorite salsa
  • Jalapeños, chopped (optional - for extra spice)
  • Red chili peppers (optional - for extra spice)
  • Organic blue corn chips (gluten-free)


1. Warm the cheese until melted through. You can also keep the queso in a crockpot or slow-cooker so it stays warm.

2. Add all ingredients and top with red chili peppers and chopped jalapeños.

3. Serve with organic blue corn chips (gluten-free) and enjoy!

NOTE: Feel free to add any veggies of your choice. I lightly sautéed (still slightly crunchy) some "farmers market fresh" peppers and added them to the mix.
