Sometimes I think the perfect dinner might just be made up of appetizers. I mean have you checked out the Appetizer page on Wine & Glue lately? I mean it’s growing with wild abandon. My favorite part of any party . . . besides the you know the hanging out with loved ones . . . is the snacks! I love it when there is a serious spread of dips, bites, roll ups, and finger food.
I mean, it’s realistically the best way to do eating if you think about it. Because with appetizers, you get a little taste of ev-A-reee-THING! (That was everything spelled out funkily so you could sense my excitement.)
Come to think of it, I really should go out for tapas more often.
Or, you know, out period.
Anyway, I was working on a really REDONKULOUS dinner recipe yesterday, and it really needed some Homemade Queso Sauce to kick it up a notch. But seriously, Homemade Queso Sauce really deserves it’s own post and place on the Wine & Glue Appetizer page.
Homemade Queso Sauce
- 1 TBSP unsalted butter
- 1/2 a large jalapeño diced (about 1 TBSP)
- 2 cloves of garlic diced
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 TBSP all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
- Melt the butter over low heat and sauté the jalapeño and garlic until translucent.
- Whisk in the chili powder and cumin. Then whisk in the flour until fully blended.
- Slowly whisk in the milk a little at a time so that it fully combines.
- Add the salt and the pepper and cook for about two minutes until it reduces.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses.
- Serve warm.
