Quick Queso Dip
I am so happy summer is here; this is my absolute favorite time of year! It could be because my birthday is the first day of summer (today!) :) Also, food is just better during the summer; fresh vegetables and fruit from the garden, grilling anything and everything, and fresh, fruity drinks and treats (hint, hint … a post to come). Some of my favorite memories that my family continues to make is getting together at my parent’s house and enjoying food and each others’ company on the pool deck! It is such a relaxing time of year … summertime, when the livins easy :)

- 4 oz cheddar cheese
- 4 oz pepper jack cheese
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1 medium jalapeno
- 1/4 vidalia onion
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro
I shred my own cheese, but you could buy pre-shredded cheese as well. But, I recommend you shred your own because it is fresh and creamier. Dice the red pepper and jalapeno as finely as you can and let the cream cheese come to room temperature so that it is easy to mix. If you like fresh onions and cilantro, go ahead and add some (I eat them, but not my favorite, so I omitted them from my queso because … I’m the one eating it)!
Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl with a spoon.
Now, wasn’t that easy? A delicious Quick Queso Dip that you can have ready to eat in 10 minutes or less!
I hope you are enjoying your summer, make sure to take time for yourself and relax … you deserve it :)
Keep Calm and Cook On,
