When Angel and Naomi Colon were here at the end of June, I asked him about all the different types of Mexican cheeses. I bought some and we wanted to try a 'white cheese dip'. We did 1/3 of the recipe and added some juice from canned jalapenos and cayenne pepper. Very good. Also, we just made it in the microwave.
White Queso Dip
32 oz Asadero or Queso Quesadilla cubed
1/2 cup diced green chiles (if using canned, drain them first)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chile powder
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup crema (sour cream)
1 red bell pepper, seeded, diced
Over a double boiler or in a crock pot, stir all ingredients except crema until cheese is melted. Immediately before serving, stir in crema.
