This is a blend of cheese and chipotle infusion that quickly disappears once on the table, so be sure to take a few bites! I really like the hint of Mexican oregano in this sauce, but you can consider it optional if you don't have any.

You will never go wrong with Queso Dip and this recipe is the Queso Dipper I rely on the most 🙂

You could easily celebrate Cinco de Mayo by putting some Poblanos in the oven, sitting on the couch, and enjoying the smell coming from the kitchen. But you can also use them to prepare Quick Vegetarian Stuffed Poblanos 🙂
