So lately, I’ve been slightly obsessed with dips and cheese and all things made with salsa verde. That may seem like a random list, but it’s really not. Promise. See, if you put them all together, you have this delicious salsa verde white queso dip!

I know I just posted a queso dip recipe the other day, but there are so many ways to make queso. And this salsa verde queso is definitely different from the first. I made this one over the weekend, and friends, it was so good that I couldn’t wait to share!

Besides, it’s football season. Need I say more?

Looking for more warm dip recipes for game day? Check these out:

This dip is made with a combination of Monterey Jack cheese and mozzarella. It’s a little thicker than the cheddar queso and a little spicer due to the addition of tomatillo salsa.

But, it’s also just as easy to make and quite possibly even cheesier than the cheddar. I kind of got a little bit carried away with the pictures of stretchy cheese, as you can tell.

If you’re planning to eat the queso right away, you can drizzle it over tortilla chips or eat it straight from the skillet. If you’re serving this dip for a party or tailgating, it keeps nice and warm in a small Crock-Pot. Just make the queso in the skillet, and transfer it to the slow cooker when it’s done.

I recommend keeping the Crock-Pot setting on warm so that it heats evenly and doesn’t boil. The dip stays warm for at least a couple of hours this way, so it’s perfect for entertaining. Just dip the chips and gobble it up!
