Number of Servings:


  1. 2 tablespoons - butter
  2. 2 tablespoons - cornstarch
  3. 2 ounces - cream cheese
  4. 4 ounces - sharp cheddar cheese cubed
  5. 4 ounces - pepper jack cheese cubed
  6. 1 cans - 12 oz. evaporated milk
  7. 1 cans - 10 oz. diced tomatoes and green chilies


Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; whisk in cornstarch and cook for one minute, continually whisking.

Next whisk in the evaporated milk, and continue to stir until well blended. Let the mixture thicken a little by bringing it to a slow and steady bubble, whisking constantly for one minute.

Reduce the heat to low. Stir in the cream cheese. Then add the cheddar and pepper jack a few cubes at a time. Wait for each addition of cheese to melt before adding more, so your queso will be nice and smooth.

Once all of the cheese has been added and is melted, stir in the diced tomatoes and green chilies. Heat queso until it begins to bubble up again. Keep warm in a slow cooker on low heat, for serving.
