DIY Queso

Who doesn’t love the white queso from any Mexican Restaraunt? Not to mention Chipotle or Qdoba queso mmmmm I am already getting hungry!!!

I make several different types of queso, I make it with velveeta cheese and enxhilada sauce, velveeta cheese and rotel tomatoes

Today I made it a little fancier and love how it turned out so I thought I would share it here!

What you will need


  • 1/4 medium onion diced
  • 1/4 jalapeño diced
  • 1/2 can green chilies
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1.5- 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (your choice I used quesadila cheese old el paso brand it is white melting cheese(


  • In a medium non-stick pot heat the butter
  • Add onions and garlic simmering until the butter is bubbly and the onions are translucent
