Looking For A Good Dip?
When I head to a party, one of the first things my husband always looks for is whether or not they have any sort of dip. He’s not picky, he likes hot and cold dips. He’s fine with dipping vegetables, breadsticks or tortilla chips in the dip. Just any sort of dip, and he’s happy.
While I’ve had my Pressure Cooker for a couple of years now, I was surprised that I really hadn’t made that many dips in it! Recently, I shared a recipe for Instant Pot Spinach Dip that was super yummy! That got me thinking, what other dips can be made in a Pressure Cooker. Well, how about the king of all dips: Queso!
Instant Pot Queso
This Instant Pot Queso may be one of the easiest, straightforward recipes I’ve ever made in my Pressure Cooker. You literally just dump a couple of ingredients in your Instant Pot, let it cook for one minutes and then stir in some butter.
Ready to get started? Here is what you’ll need:
- White american cheese
- Diced green chilies
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Cayenne pepper (optional for heat)
- Tortilla chips for serving
What To Use Instant Pot Queso For?
Yes, this is an awesome dip. And you can dip just about anything into it, including tortilla chips, Fritos, breadsticks or veggies. But you can also pour it on top of other dishes to add some South-of-the-Border flair. I would be delicious poured over a boneless skinless chicken breast or as a topping of a baked potato! And, of course, you could drop it straight on top of tortilla chips for some awesome nachos!
How To Serve Queso?
If your Pressure Cooker has a “keep warm” function, it would be best to keep it in that to serve in. Or you could transfer it to a Crockpot or Slow Cooker and set it on low heat or “keep warm” and serve it in there. Once you remove it from all heat, the cheese will immediately start to harden.
