Restaurant quality homemade white queso dip (Queso Blanco) is super easy to make at home. Just three main ingredients: white American cheese, milk, and butter plus a dash of cumin and garlic powder and you’ll be dipping chips or better yet Tater Tots!

We like to serve them with diced fresh jalapeño and tomato and a sprinkle of cilantro on top.

As teenagers whenever we were allowed to have “a party” the number one requested snack was Tater Tots. It’s still a family favorite side dish at our house.

I found this articleThe Tater Tot is American Ingenuity at its Finest, which tells the colorful story of how Golden TATER TOTS™ got their start back in the mid-1950’s. It’s crazy to think that today Americans consume nearly 4 billion tots annually. That’s over 100 per person. Not gonna lie, I’m pulling my weight here :) especially when they’re dipped in queso dip!
