"This Mexican-inspired cheese dip can be made with any kind of cheese and your favorite salsa. Regular oregano may be used in place of the more strongly-flavored Mexican variety. Serve it warm with tortilla chips." — CJANDRJ

Everyone loves this dish! I also add a bottom layer of bean dip and thinly sliced green onion and diced tomatoes on top.
Although this was okay, it was certainly not a substitute for Mexican style queso. Sorry, but even Velveeta makes a better dip.
Halfed and made for a small dinner party and was disappointed to find it all eaten before I could get any. Made it again the next day and am determined to finish the whole thing myself. Put a layer of refried beans on the bottom and topped with extra pepper jack.
YUMMY! Very good and easy to make. My 1 year old loved it. It was her first taste of queso dip. I left out the oregano and the salt and pepper. It has a lot of flavor on its own. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It would also make a great topping/sauce for burritos.
Pretty good dip! I probably used more cheese on top than suggested, but it was sooooo yummy. Next time I'll use a 9x9 pan so the dip is a bit thicker, and put some chopped tomatoes on top after it's out of the oven.
I doubled this recipe is a small crock pot on med/high for an hour, i skipped the taco seasoning and used a few tbs of salt free Mexican seasoning, then added and extra cup of pepper jack and a cup of a mixture of diced red peppers, jalapeños, onions, red onions and the juice of one lemon. It was a baby shower hit. I also added lots of fresh cilantro at the end! I used on container of organic valley salsa and served it with chips and fresh pico. people were inhaling it. 10 people ate a double batch!! Hit!!!!!
Delicious, delicious, delicious...couldn't stop eating this. Thank you for the easy and wonderful recipe.
I needed a cold queso recipe for a large banquet. I decided to adapt this one. I left out the oregano but kept everything else the same. I didn't bake it, just blended everything together, chilled and served it with Fritos. It was wonderful! Four times the recipe served 250 people along with other appetizers.
