Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Queso Quesadilla can be used in this recipe.


  1. Combine Queso Chihuahua® Quesadilla and cornstarch in medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cook red pepper and jalapeno in butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until tender, stirring occasionally. Gradually stir in evaporated milk and seasonings. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; gradually stir in the reserved Queso Chihuahua® Quesadilla mixture until melted. Stir in beer; heat through. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.

Recipe Tips

  • The dip thickens as it cools. To reheat in the microwave: Warm dip in a microwave-safe bowl on high for 30-60 second intervals, depending on amount. Stir dip between each interval.
  • We used Modelo Negra™ beer in this recipe.
  • Want less spicy heat? With a whole jalapeno, this dip has zip! To reduce the heat, remove the seeds and membranes before dicing the jalapeno pepper.
  • Avoid touching face when handling jalapeno peppers. Consider wearing gloves, as oils may burn skin.
  • This dip is yummy served with steamed veggies, over enchiladas, on tater tots or as the cheese sauce for from-scratch mac and cheese.
