If you are looking for a full flavored dip with exactly the right amount of heat, our Cast Iron Cowboy Queso will hit the spot.
Using the cast iron skillet helps the cheese melt perfectly and really brings out the flavors. The flavor can be easily adjusted per taste.
We have replaced the jalapenos with salsa at times. If you add salsa, make sure you drain it, the extra water can make it soupy.
