Mushroom Goat Cheese Queso

This dip was the runaway favorite at our recent Open House. It has just enough tang to make it a savory and spicy delight for the mouth! Serve with pita wedges. Thanks to Whole Foods and PopSugar.

INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons grapeseed oil
1/2 pound mixed mushrooms, finely chopped
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 ounces soft goat cheese (chèvre), crumbled
3 ounces grated goat Gouda
6 ounces (about 1 3/4 cups) shredded pepper jack cheese
1 1/2 cups sliced baby spinach leaves
2 chipotles in adobo (from a can), minced (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onions and salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms have released their liquid and are both dry and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Spread mushrooms and onions over the bottom of a small ovenproof casserole or gratin dish.
  3. In a large bowl, combine goat cheese, grated Gouda, pepper jack cheese, spinach, and chipotles. Toss until combined. Spread cheese mixture evenly over mushrooms and bake until bubbling, about 25 minutes. Serve hot. 9526aee96a212e0f_Mushroom-Queso-Dip
