  5. Continue to cook the queso dip over low heat, stirring occasionally, for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  6. Remove the saucepan from heat and transfer the queso dip to a serving bowl.
  7. Garnish the queso dip with chopped fresh cilantro, diced tomatoes, and sliced jalapeƱos, if desired.
