Restaurant Style Queso Blanco

Who doesn’t love queso?  I’m obsessed with it.  This recipe is excellent and our favorite.  We eat it with chips, for dinner parties, and even as a dip for my ballpark pretzel crusted chicken (to come soon).  It’s super versatile and very impressive since it’s made from scratch and doesn’t have fake cheese and crap in it.  I try to make 90% of what we put in our bodies from scratch.  No need for chemicals, preservatives, and junk.  Plus it tastes so much better!  Make this again and again just like we do!
