You need to look no further for the most incredible cheese dip you’ve ever had because I have it for you. It’s a Copycat Torchy’s Queso dip recipe and it is straight from heaven.
I grew up in the San Diego area. We lived in the land of amazing Mexican food. I didn’t know how good I had it until I moved away and now nothing beats a Rico’s bean and cheese burrito. My brother and his family moved a few years ago to Austin, Texas – land of every kind of food. I finally got to visit him this winter and he casually mentioned that we needed to go to Torchy’s on the way to the airport. So we did. It was life. changing. Dramatic? Probably. But oh my word every bite was incredible. My absolute favorite was the queso and chips. I think I said “Oh my gosh, this is so good!” at least 5 times. And I meant it.
I couldn’t help but share the amazingness on Instagram.
It’s not hard to recreate at home if you have the right ingredients. I wish we lived close to a Torchy’s or that they would open one in my area. But for now, this will definitely fit the bill until my next visit to my brother’s house. Major thanks to Megan Brunson for this recipe that was given to my brother. And to my sister for making it for Easter. It made me weak in the knees….
