Ingredients

Cheese

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

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add bell pepper and jalapeno pepper; cook for 4-6 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. 
  2. Meanwhile, combine evaporated milk and cornstarch in a bowl until smooth; add to skillet. Stir in the garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, pepper and cayenne pepper. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. 
  3. Reduce heat to low; gradually stir in Chihuahua® Quesadilla until melted. Stir in beer; heat through. Serve immediately with 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 mac and cheese.
