  • For smooth queso: combine all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until completely smooth. 
    For chunky queso: combine all ingredients except salsa in a high speed blender and blend until completely smooth. 
  • Pour mixture into a small sauce pan. If making chunky queso, add the salsa now. Stirring frequently, cook over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until the queso has thickened. Taste and add more salsa if desired. Serve immediately. 


Store leftover queso in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat before serving.
