This easy Homemade White Queso Dip Recipe is delicious and creamy! It’s made with 3 kinds of cheeses — pepper jack cheese, white American cheese, cream cheese — and a few other simple ingredients.


8 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded
8 ounces white American cheese, cubed (or cut into small pieces)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into pieces
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles, drained (10 oz – such as Rotel)
1/4 – 3/4 cup whole milk (can use half & half or evaporated milk)


Combine pepper jack cheese, white American cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, and Rotel in a medium saucepan over low heat. Heat until cheese melts completely, stirring often. To thin out queso, begin by adding 1/4 cup milk and stir. If queso is not to desired consistency, continuing adding milk. Serve immediately.


–For best results, use full-fat products for the cheese and sour cream (not light or reduced fat).

–White American cheese can often be found in the deli of your grocery store. Just ask the deli clerk for 1/2 pound unsliced then cut at home into cubes. If your store sells it in slices, this can also be used.

–1/2 pound of cooked meat, such as beef, sausage or chorizo, is also delicious added to this dip.

–This recipe makes about 3 cups of queso dip and will serve about 12 people with 1/4 cup per person.
