You’ve Had Salsa Before, But Probably Never Like This…

This stuff disappears so fast, we always make a double batch!

You can’t go wrong with chips and salsa, but when we want to go all-out, we whip up this super creamy queso dip. The melty cheese and juicy tomatillo sauce is a perfect pairing with crunchy tortilla chips. We love being able to customize the heat level to our guests’ tastes, especially if there are little ones around! It comes together in a flash, and is a huge hit at any get-together – from game night to Cinco de Mayo fiestas. This stuff always disappears in no time, you may need to make a double batch!

  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped

  2. In a large bowl, mix together tomatillo sauce, green chiles and lime juice until combined.
