Loaded Queso

Getting reviews...
You’ll never have to decide between queso, guacamole or salsa again. This epic trio dip is inspired by the queso at Torchy's Tacos in Houston, Texas. A classic green chile queso gets topped with fresh guacamole and just the right amount of heat with a homemade diablo sauce. Use a cast-iron skillet to keep the queso warm longer, although it probably won't last that long with a crowd!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Add the processed cheese, green chiles and 1/3 cup of the tomatoes along with some of their juice to a medium saucepan or an 8-inch cast-iron skillet and turn the heat to medium. Cook, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula, until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
  2. For the diablo sauce, add the remaining tomatoes and juice, chipotle peppers, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon salt to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to a simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula. Set aside to slightly cool, about 5 minutes. Put the sauce into the jar of a blender and blend until smooth (see Cook's Note).
  3. Add the avocado, jalapeno, red onion, lime juice, cilantro and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a small bowl. Mash the avocado with the side of a spoon and stir to combine.
  4. To serve, top the queso with the guacamole, queso fresco, cilantro and a drizzle of the diablo sauce. Serve with tortilla chips.

Cook’s Note

When blending hot liquid, first let it cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer it to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters, and pulse until smooth.
