Skinny Queso


Recipe: Skinny Queso

Summary: My favorite kind of queso is homemade, has no beans or meat, and has lots of spice, so this recipe mirrors that. However, you could easy saute some hamburger to start the recipe, or throw in some beans. Make it however you like it. I adapted this recipe from one that was passed around at a WW meeting, adding lots more spice. If you don’t want it quite as spicy, eliminate the jalapeno.


    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 poblano, diced
    • 1 jalapeno, diced
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth
    • 1 1/4 cup skim milk
    • 3 tbsp cornstarch
    • 1 10-ounce can tomatoes with chiles, diced and drained
    • 1 3/4 cups reduced fat sharp Cheddar, shredded
    • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • juice of 1 lime
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1/4 tsp black pepper
    • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp ancho chili powder
