Can you make it without an Instant Pot?

I love to make this in the Instant Pot as it’s so fuss free, but be sure to check out my Easy Queso Blanco which is made on the stovetop in a skillet. Cooking it in the pressure cooker results in a really smooth and creamy texture, and I love that it frees up my stovetop for other goodies!

Can you make it ahead of time?

If you have any leftover dip, pour it into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator up to 3-4 days. It’ quick to cook, but you can make it up a day or two before to get ahead of things.

To reheat it, add a splash of milk and heat in the microwave in 15-30 second increments, stirring between each increment to make sure it’s fully heated through.

What do you serve with it?

I like to garnish this Instant Pot queso blanco with some freshly chopped cilantro and some sliced jalapenos. A big pile of tortilla chips are the perfect dipping companion, or pita chips and crusty bread work great too. It also works wonderfully when spooned on to burgers!
