A quick and delicious homemade queso dip with roasted broccoli and cheddar cheese. Served with toasty bread or thick chips.


2 cups chopped broccoli, roasted
1/4 large white onion, grated
1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups warm milk
8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and pepper
Olive oil, for broccoli
Crusty bread or chips for dipping


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Chop broccoli into big florets, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and pepper. Bake broccoli for 20 minutes, stirring ever 8-10 minutes.

2) In a medium pot, melt butter over medium heat. Then add onions and peppers and cook until onions are soft, about 5 minutes.

3) Whisk in flour into the onions to form a light roux. Cook for a minute or two to cook out flour taste.

4) Whisk in warm milk slowly. The mixture should thicken into a nice cream sauce.

5) Add grated cheese and stir until melted. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.

6) When broccoli is done roasting, cut into very small florets. Then fold broccoli into the cheese sauce.

7) Season queso with salt and pepper.

Serve queso immediately with crusty bread or tortilla chips.
