All three recipes are included at the bottom of the post! Thanks to Delimex for working with us on this post.

Mexican and Tex-Mex food is my favorite. Even though it doesn’t necessarily agree with me when I’m pregnant (and let’s be honest – even when I’m not. Acid reflux is no fun), it’s something I often crave – especially chips and salsa that most Mexican restaurants offer.

To be honest, I think what I like the most are things like salsa, guacamole, and even the occasional creamy cheese dip (which, you may be surprised to hear if you know me well – not a big fan of cheese over here.) It’s always hard for me to resist ordering one of these items as an appetizer or whipping up a batch to enjoy at home. There’s just something so delicious about dipping chips, taquitos, or even tamales in a flavorful dip.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up, I thought it would be fitting to make my own versions of my favorite Mexican restaurant style dips. I spent a few days at my parent’s house this last week while Forrest was in North Carolina, so I made these for them (to go along with taquitos, tamales, chicken enchiladas, and, of course, corn tortilla chips.)

My mom could hardly put down the guacamole. The salsa was incredibly easy to make – all you need is a blender. And the queso blanco dip came together in minutes as well. It was definitely a delicious feast!

First up – the queso blanco dip! This is made using a double broiler (so, you just need a metal bowl and a pot to boil water in), and the ingredients are all easily found at the grocery store. This was my little brother’s favorite dip.

    These dips look and sound yummy. I do have a question about the w Blanco dip. The last ingredient listed is 1 small can rotel with grmeen chilies. Since the rotel is a tomato why does the dip not turn pink or red?


    • Katie says

      I’m not sure! I guess it just doesn’t bleed through. Rotel is pretty commonly used in dips, and I’ve never seen it turn the dip red. So I would imagine it’s how it’s prepared? Fresh rotel may be different.


  2. Camille Nones says

    These all look delicious. The guacamole is my favorite. I would love to try the Queso Blanco recipe though. These pictures just want me to go to a Mexican Restaurant right now. lol. I will definitely try all these dips next weekend! Thank you for sharing.
