Chef John’s Queso Dip
Minimal time and effort go into making this silky, addictive queso dip that melds green chiles, tomatoes, and scallions with your favorite melty cheese.
Into a bowl, grate some Cheddar cheese.
Add cornstarch and stir to combine.
In a pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter.
Add the light-colored scallions and garlic.
Add some cumin, salt, and chipotle.
For about 2 minutes, cook and stir until fragrant.
Cook and stir for 2 minutes more after adding the green chiles and 1/2 cup of tomatoes.
Add evaporated milk and heat until boiling.
Just until the cheese is melted, add the Cheddar and remove from heat right away.
