Spicy queso dip

Spicy queso dip Easy Food
Serves 6-8
20g butter
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 Jalapeños, finely chopped
350ml cream
1 tbsp cornflour
120g cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
2 tsp yellow mustard
350g sharp cheddar, grated

To serve:
Tortilla chips, (or crusty bread, crudités or anything else you’d like for dipping!)

  1. Melt the butter in a pot over a medium heat. Cook the shallots, garlic and jalapeño for 3-4 minutes to soften, then add the cream.
  2. Whisk in the cornflour and allow the mixture to come to a simmer, then reduce the temperature to medium-low. Stir in the cream cheese and mustard.
  3. Slowly start adding the grated cheese by the handful, stirring until the cheese melts and the sauce comes together. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a fondue pot.

Use any variety of good melting cheese you like: for example, if you enjoy a smoky flavour, try replacing half of the cheese with smoked Cheddar. If you prefer your cheese sauce a little thinner, simply add another splash of cream or milk.
