Ingredients (makes about 4 1/2 cups)

  • 1 lb Monterey jack cheese, cubed (450 g)
  • 8 oz cream cheese (230 g)
  • 1 cup canned diced green chiles (140 g/ 5 oz)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (14 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp butter (14 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1 cup raw full-fat milk (230 g/ 8 oz) - see note below

Note: Although full-fat milk is relatively high in carbs, the carb count per serving in this queso blanco will be negligible. If you want to avoid whole milk altogether, you can substitute 1 cup of whole milk with 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream mixed with 3/4 cup water.

Instructions

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a slow cooker or an Instant Pot and set to low heat for 2 hours (slow cooking mode on the Instant Pot). If it’s too thick add a bit more milk and stir.
  2. Set slow cooker to warm to serve.

  3. Store leftover queso in a jar in the refrigerator for up to a week and reheat in the microwave with a bit more milk or water to thin.

Hi! Can I use regular vitamin D / whole milk instead of the raw?

Reply

Hi Megan, yes you can although I'd use whole (full-fat) as regular and low-fat milk contains more carbs.

Thanks so much! I'm excited to try it! Have a beautiful and safe 4th of July 🎆🧨✨

You too!

Can I use queso fresco instead of Monterey jack?

Reply

I think you can - it is a different type of cheese, more similar to feta so the texture will be different.

For some reason the link for keto tortilla chips didn’t do anything in the app.

My mistake - fixed 😊
