Texas Grits Queso Dip

Yield: 15-20 servings (2 quarts)




½ cup BSM grits (any variety)

2 cups broth (beef, chicken or vegetable)

(yields about 2 cups cooked)



1 ½ cups cooked BSM grits                                    

1 T BSM All Purpose flour

1 T unsalted butter

1 4oz (113g) can diced green chilies

3 cups whole milk

4 cups Jalapeno Monterey Jack cheese (shredded)

4 T chili lime hot sauce or traditional (Cholula used here)

3 T fresh lime juice

1 ½ tsp fine sea salt

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika


Garnish ideas: (optional)

cooked chorizo, barbacoa, el pastor

fresh cilantro

sliced avocado

tortilla chips (naturally!)


Pre-cook ½ cup of grits in 2 cups of broth on medium heat until the grits are tender. Stir often to prevent from sticking. Set aside.


In a medium stock pot or sauce pan, heat over medium heat the butter and flour to create a quick roux. Cook for 3 min and whisk constantly to prevent the flour from burning. Add the diced green chilies (do not strain the juices) into the roux and stir. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and salt to the roux mixture. Whisk in the 3 cups of milk and continue to whisk the mixture consistently until the milk begins to steam about 4 min. Add the cooked grits and shredded cheese. Whisk constantly to allow the cheese to melt and fully incorporate. Whisk in the lime juice and hot sauce. Lower the temperature to low-medium and whisk very often until the mixture is fully incorporated and the flavors bloom, about 10-15 min.


Garnish with the suggested toppings or whatever toppings you prefer. Serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips for an instant crowd pleaser, because queso dip is life here in Texas!
