Simple Queso

As you probably know, I’m an avid foodie, but I also have that pesky career which takes up quite a bit of my time.  I’ll occasionally commit time to roasting peppers or experimenting with a dozen new ingredients to spice up my queso.  There isn’t always time available though so shortcuts have a place in my kitchen and and this 3 ingredient queso is a nice example. 

Simple Queso

Yellow Onion
Jalapeno Peppers

This can be as simple as melting the cheese on the stove top, adding the chopped onion and jalapenos, and letting it simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.  I recommend this vs. a microwave because the time in the saucepan will allow the flavor to blend.  The jalepenos can be canned or fresh.  You can add a bit of milk, water, or white wine to help thin the mixture to suit your taste.

If you can commit a second 5 minutes as I did in the picture, saute the fresh jalapenos and onion in the pan with a tablespoon of olive oil first until the onions have browned.  Then add the cheese.
