Queso Blanco Dip is traditionally served in Mexican restaurants and often uses white American cheese. I wanted to go with more natural cheeses, so I used four of my favorites in this baked cheese dip – fontina (a sharp, creamy cheese), sharp white cheddar, pepper jack and cream cheese. The only non-cheese ingredient is a can of green chiles which you could swap out for jalapenos if you want it a little spicier. Can’t find fontina? Swap out mozzarella. The key is to use cheeses that melt easily. If you don’t want any heat you could use regular monterey jack instead of the pepper jack, but really the heat is pretty minimal in this Queso Blanco.
