Southern Recipe’s White Queso Dip


  • 1 lb. pepper jack cheese
  • 8 oz cream cheese

  • 1 10 oz can tomatoes & green chiles, drained
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (if needed)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • pork rinds


  1. In a medium pot over low heat, combine pepperjack cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, tomatoes & green chiles.
  2. Let the mixture heat until the cheese melts and a smooth cream forms, stirring often. This should take 15-20 minutes. Add seasoning and add milk to achieve desired texture.
