Green Chile Queso Blanco – Ooey gooey queso blanco with green chiles, peppers, and kickin’ spices! Ready in just 15 minutes!
Guys. I grew up loving LOVING spicy foods. The hotter, the better. Seriously. One of my favorite snacks was pickled jalapeños straight from the jar. For a little while, my spicy addiction sort of faded into the background a bit. But it’s back. With a vengeance! I bought a jar of jalapeños solely for the purpose of eating with a fork. I put hot sauce on my bagel (yes it was toasted and shmeared with cream cheese) and on my potato chips. It’s crazy people, just crazy.
So to satisfy my crazy cravings I’ve been making lots of hot n’ spicy snacks and dishes lately. Like Green Chile Queso Blanco. Oh my gosh, so good! If you don’t want it very spicy, just leave the jalapeños out, it will still taste amazing without them (but if you can handle the heat, put em in!!) The best part? It comes together in like, fifteen minutes. Tops. Just think, fifteen minutes from now you could be enjoying this ooey gooey cheesy green chile queso dip.
Well, get a move on!
