Addicting Queso- Low Carb and Trim Healthy Mama S

This queso is so good, it’s addicting. It’s also low carb, trim healthy mama s.

I love queso! Good queso is hard for me to resist. Most often though, it has off plan ingredients. This queso uses simple ingredients found at your local grocery store and creates a dip that will give any restaurant queso a run for their money. It is so creamy and smooth!

You can top with pico de gallo, guacamole, or nothing.

One of my favorite quesos ever is topped with pico. I think guacamole would also be a nice topper. But honestly, this queso can stand on its own. If you like things spicey, add more jalapenos. As is, it isn’t spicy. I try to make our foods/meals so that everyone can enjoy it. This way we can make it as hot as we want.

This is perfect for Cinco de Mayo, Taco Tuesday, the Superbowl, or just because.

If you are having people over for any reason or are craving queso, this is the recipe for you. This creamy queso is the perfect party snack. Here are a few dip ideas: homemade low carb tortilla chips, low carb tortilla chips, pork rinds, various veggies like mini bell peppers, cucumbers, etc. I would love to hear your review if you make this queso.

    Just curious how does this queso reheat? W want to make it ahead of time before we travel for our Christmas meal and reheat it there before serving. Thanks for your time

      I would reheat slowly on low. My suggestion, make it without heating and heat it up when you are ready to eat it.
