This healthy queso dip tastes amazing with chips or smothered on your favorite burrito. It has all the flavor and none of the guilt! Make this dip with sharp cheddar and jalapenos, you won't regret it.
What you need:
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 poblano pepper, diced
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/4 cup skim milk
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles, drained
- 1 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (I prefer sharp cheddar)
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 tsp. lime juice
- 1 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp ancho chili powder
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup milk with 3 tsbp of cornstarch. Set aside, this will serve as the thickener.
Bring a medium to large sauce pan up to medium heat and spray non fat coking spray. Add the onions, garlic, poblano, and jalapeno and cook for 5-7 minutes until they begin to soften.
Add the chicken broth and milk. Bring to a simmer and let cook for about 3 minutes to reduce slightly.
Add the cornstarch mixture to the pan and stir quickly. It will immediately thicken up and begin to bubble. Once you see it thicken up, turn the heat to low. Add the cheese and stir until it melts completely.
Add the cheese and stir until it melts completely. Then add the tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
Serve with homemade baked tortilla chips. To cook, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut corn tortillas in 1/4′s and place onto a sheet of parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt. Cook for 10-15 minutes until crispy.
