- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, coarsely grated (1 cup)
- 1 tablespoon Creole spice blend
How to make this recipe
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Whisk in the flour and cook, whisking constantly, for 3 minutes. Turn the heat to high and whisk in the milk. Bring the mixture to a boil while whisking, then lower the heat and gently simmer, whisking occasionally, until thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, add the cheese and whisk the queso until it’s smooth. Whisk in the Creole seasoning and keep warm until ready to use.
