Does anyone have a queso recipe (with no velveeta or flour in it?)
I am a mexican food fool.
Now that I am a diabetic, I have thrown all tortillas, etc.. to the side.
But I misssssssssssssssss queso. All the recipes I have seen online are made with either flour or velveeta or both. :(
Do you have a recipe that doesn't have one of those two ingredients in it?
Thanks in advance!
I have a recipe from Birgit's Daily Bytes. It's in her recipe file.
Couldn't sleep last night, so I spent hours and hours searching the internet and finally found a recipe for queso that does NOT have velveeta OR flour in it!!
Restaurant-Style Queso Blanco
Get smooth and creamy restaurant-style chile con queso at home.
1 Tbsp cooking oil (veggie, olive, canola - whatever you have)
1/4 cup white onion, diced
1 large jalapeno or serrano, seeds and stem removed; diced
12 oz white American cheese (I have the deli give me 3 slices on 10), shredded
4 oz Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded (optional; don't use pre-shredded)
1/4-2/3 cup cream, half-and-half, or whole milk
1 small bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
Heat the oil in a saute pan. Cook the onion and pepper until softened and reduce heat to medium-low.
Add the shredded cheese and 1/4 cup of the cream. Stir until mostly melted.
Add cilantro, and additional cream a little at a time until you reach desired consistency.
Yields: ~2 cups
24/7 Low Carb Diner has one too- she uses egg to thicken it
How about a can of Ro-Tel and a pound of cubed chedder cheese all melted together, or a combination chedder and jack cheese. I remember making this in a chafing dish probably 40 years ago and we did not use velveeta. It would probably work in a slow cooker or gently simmered in a double boiler.
Or, you could use salsa instead or Ro-Tel in the above recipe.
I've never had any luck with getting cheddars to melt to the right consistency. Lawd knows I've tried though! :D
