How to make keto queso

Tips for making keto queso
- You can grate a block of cheese or use pre-shredded cheese. Just note that sometimes pre-shredded cheeses use fillers to prevent sticking. Always check labels.
- You can use half and half, or heavy whipping cream. If you use heavy whipping cream add a couple of table spoons of water to thin it out otherwise your keto queso will be too thick.
- If you like your keto queso dip spicier, increase the cayenne pepper or add a small can of diced chiles (drained) to the dip at the end.
- If you don’t like spice, leave out the cayenne pepper.
Cheese for Keto Queso
We like to use sharp cheddar because of the extra flavor and color that it adds to this keto queso recipe. You can use your favorite cheese. Some other types of cheese to use to make keto queso are Colby jack, white cheddar, and habanero cheddar cheese.
