Review: Del Taco - Chips and Queso Blanco Dip

Del Taco's Chips and Queso Blanco Dip features a cup of queso made with cheese, milk, jalapenos, and heavy cream served with tortilla chips for dipping.

An order was $1.29.

They're pretty generous with the chips but a little miserly with the dip. The chips filled the bottom of a brown paper bag while the queso dip came in a narrow sauce cup that I couldn't fit more than a corner of a chip in. I ran out of dip with five or six chips left and it's not as if I was going to town on the dip.

The queso blanco was a little watery on top but got thicker and more flavorful a quarter of the way down. There were occasional diced chunks of jalapeno in it that contributed a sporadic and somewhat varied heat.

The chips were thick with a substantial crunch and came judiciously salted. They're ideal for dipping and would stand up pretty well to even the thickest of cheese sauces (which the queso blanco is not).

Overall, Del Taco's new Queso Blanco Dip could stand to be a little richer and just a tad thicker but still made for some enjoyable eating. It basically tastes like a mild pepper jack cheese sauce.
