Chile Verde con Queso (Green Chile with Cheese)

This recipe for creamy and cheesy chile verde con queso (green chile with cheese) is a deliciously spicy dish that goes great with beans, eggs, burritos and more.

Author: Gemma from Everyday Latina
  • 10 roasted, peeled, and diced Anaheim or Hatch chiles
  • 1/2 diced tomato
  • 1/4 diced onion
  • 1 diced garlic clove
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon (see notes)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese or other white cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. 

  2. Sauté the diced onion, diced tomato, and diced garlic. 

  3. Add the diced green chiles and stir to combine. If you have very mild chile, you can add 1-2 diced jalapeños during this step for an extra kick.

  4. Next, add 2 cups of milk, salt and pepper to taste, and 1 teaspoon of chicken bouillon.*

  5. Let everything boil for 3-5 minutes. Watch the pot carefully because if the milk boils too rapidly it will overflow.

  6. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

  7. Finally, add in about 1 1/2 cups of shredded white Mexican cheese, a good melting mozzarella or Monterrey Jack will also work. 

  8. Once the cheese is melted, turn off the heat.

  9. Serve with beans, mashed potatoes, rice, eggs, or smothered on burritos.

Recipe Notes

*As with my other recipes, chicken bouillon is optional but it will add more flavor.
