Frequently Asked Questions

Easy Roasted Hatch Green Chili Queso Dip Recipe - ¡HOLA! JALAPEÑO (8)

How do I keep this green chile queso recipe warm? Transfer the dip to a small slow cooker and set it to the “warm” setting. The dip will stay warm and melty all night.

I can’t find Hatch chiles, what other peppers can I use? For a mild chile con queso you can use roasted bell peppers or Anaheim peppers. Another good substitute would be roasted poblano peppers. If you want to amp up the heat try roasted serrano peppers.

Can you suggestion some flavor variations? Sure! You can switch up the flavor by adding different spices like onion powder, cayenne pepper, chili powder, or ground cumin. Stir them in with the salt at the end.

Green Chili Queso Recipe

Yield: 10 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

This effortless Green Chili Queso Recipe is my favorite easy appetizer this holiday season. Simple and quick, but most importantly, everyone LOVES it. Monterey Jack cheese, roasted Hatch chili peppers, and a touch of garlic. All melted together in one glorious silky dip. All you need is some crunchy tortilla chips!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Make roux. Melt the butter over medium-low heat in a large saucepan. Whisk in the flour and continue to cook, whisking constantly, until flour smells toasted but not browned.
  2. Add garlic. Add the garlic and cook another minute, whisking frequently.
  3. Slowly add milk. While whisking constantly, gradually add milk, a little at a time, letting the first bit get soaked up completely by the flour before adding the next. Keep adding until all milk is mixed in. Adding the milk too quickly will result in a clumpy dip so go slow. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat.
  4. Add cheese. Stir in cheese, chiles, and salt then taste and add more salt if needed.
  5. Serve. Transfer to a bowl and top with scallions, remaining chiles, and cilantro. Serve immediatley with tortilla chips.

Notes

  1. For a spicier version: Look for the Hatch green chiles labled, "hot".
  2. Dip turned out lumpy? If you weren't able to whisk in the milk well and got a lumpy dip, you can blend the queso dip with an immersion blender before serving.
  3. To make it a heartier dish: Add cooked and crumbled chorizo or ground beef to the queso dip.
  4. Make-ahead: This dip is best eaten right away but if you are serving for a party, transfer to a small slow cooker, mix in the garnishes and keep warm on the "warm" setting.
