Delicious on tortillas! Nice ooziness (created my own word, I think). Nice consistancy. Doesn't make a whole lot, so I would probably double the recipe next time and add more heat. I would also add 1/4 t salt or salt to taste and another jalapeno (at least). Of course, being from Texas, we like it hotter than most--this is probably just the right heat for most. Thanks for the recipe! Made for ZWT5.
Made this queso as a New Years Eve appetizer last night. Everyone loved it. I accidentally forgot to put in the onion, and it was still really good. I can't wait to make it again so I can include the onions, which I love. I served it with tortilla chips for dipping versus flour tortillas. Thanks for posting.
This tastes wonderful. It is a very small amount so would need to double for a small gathering or triple/quadruple for a party. And probably needs to be kept warm in a crock pot, because the cheese starts solidifying very quickly after being taken out of the oven. I'm thinking I may use less mozzarella and more monterey jack to cut down a bit on the stringiness and solidifying.
