Vegetarian Tequila Queso
Personally, I would put chorizo, beef, chicken or pork in this recipe, but sometimes you want a cheesey dip that is a little lighter than the traditional. I like this one. It’s hot, melty and very tasty. Try it with your favorite beer and chips.
2 T. olive oil
1 small white onion, diced small
1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced small
1 – 14 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 C. tequila
1 clove garlic, minced
2 C. mexican cheeses or monterey jack
Prepare heavy pot with olive oil and turn stove onto medium high heat. Saute’ diced onions and jalapenos for about four minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and minced garlic and cook 2 minutes more. Deglaze with tequila. Be careful here because alcohol is flammable. Stir together until combined. Stir in cheese and mix thoroughly. Pour into a heat proof dish and serve with chips!
