How to Make Queso Blanco

Step 1: Stack up your cheese slices cut them into 4 quarters. (This will help the cheese to melt down easier).

Step 2: Pour two cans of evaporated milk into a crock pot. Next pour in the green chilies (un-drained). Mix these two together.

Step 3: Add your cheese slices to the crock pot, making sure to seperate them as you go. Stir all the ingredients together well.

Step 4: Cover with a lid and cook on high for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes, until all the cheeses are melted.

Step 5: Serve with tortilla chips, pork rinds, over nachos, with leftover Mexican food…whatever you’d like, the sky’s the limit!

Storage and Reheating Notes

IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.  

REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS: To reheat, place the leftover queso in a saucepan and slowly reheat on medium heat on the stove. Or place it in the microwave heating on full power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between intervals, until melted and heated through. If your white queso seems a little thick, add a little milk to help thin it out as it reheats.
