Queso Dip is a great accompaniment to crunchy nacho chips, as it provides a perfectly complementary blend of spice and cheese, which is what ‘queso’ means. Cheese slices melted with a mix of milk and chopped spring onions, garlic, chilli flakes and tomatoes gives the right balance of creamy cheesiness and juicy crunchiness to make this an ideal dip. It is very important to serve the Queso Dip piping hot and fresh, or it will become gummy.

   Dear Vineet The end of the recipe already has a nutritive value table which provides the values of carbs, protein, fiber and other nutrients. This recipe makes 1 cup which is about 14 tbsp and the values shared here are per tbsp, since no one person can have the entire 1 cup of this dip. You can multiply the values for the desired tablespoons.

This dip is a combination of cheese along with salsa that taste great with nacho chips. I at times put chopped garlic instead of the paste for a nice mouth feel...
