With the super bowl coming up fast, I wanted to make one of my favorite recipes from Food Network with some of the new Del Monte Southwestern Style tomatoes. I'm completely in love with them as is my husband who recently used a can in his beautiful turkey stew!
The recipe I wanted to make was Jalapeno Queso Dip because I like it hot!
Jalapeno Queso Dip
zest of 1 lime
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
12 6-inch corn tortillas, each cut into 6 wedges
1 onion, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 can Del Monte petite cut diced tomatoes with chipolte chiles
12 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
4 ounces sharp white cheddar, grated
- Heat oil in saucepan. In a small bowl, mix the salt and lime zest together. In batches, fry the tortillas until crisp. Sprinkle the chips with the salt lime zest while still hot. Set them aside.
- Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, jalapeno, and a pinch of salt and cook until onions are starting to brown. Add tomatoes and cook until softened. Remove skillet from heat. Toss cheese together and add them to skillet. Stir to combine.
- When you're ready to serve, preheat boiler, putting skillet underneath until cheese is bubbly and brown on top. Serve with chips.
