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.

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...
