Cilantro and Cotija Queso Dip


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 10 oz. grated white cheese*

  • chopped tomato onion, jalapeno for garnish
  • Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps for dipping


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until a thin paste forms. Turn the heat down a little (to more like low/medium) and add the 10 oz. of grated cheeses and 1/2 cup milk. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup milk while everything melts together. Before serving, sprinkle on the cilantro and cotija. You can also garnish with the tomato, onion, and jalapeƱo if using. Serve along with Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps.

Recipe Notes

*I used 8 oz. of white cheddar and 2 oz. of Manchego cheese for the white cheeses in this dip. I do recommend you use a blend, but you can change up the ratios depending on your preferences.

If you like, you can swap out the all-purpose flour for an all-purpose gluten-free flour
