Vodka Cream Sauce: Our take on spicy tomato queso dip is the new standard for tomato queso dips. Print it. Makes About 2 Cups.


  • 12 ounces Sonoma Gourmet Vodka Cream Sauce
  • 6 ounces shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 ounces shredded or torn American cheese
  • 1/3 cup pickled jalapeños, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pickled jalapeño brine
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Tortilla chips, veggies, or crackers, for serving


  1. In a small jar, shake 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/4 cup of milk until no lumps remain. Set aside.
  2. In a pot over medium heat, add the Vodka & Cream Sauce. Stir and heat until gently bubbling.
  3. Add the cornstarch and milk mixture, whisking constantly for 1 to 2 minutes until the mixture has slightly thickened and cornstarch is fully incorporated.
  4. Add cayenne pepper, and salt and black pepper as desired, and stir.
  5. Gradually add handfuls of cheese and stir constantly until melted.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the pickled jalapeño brine and chopped pickled jalapeños.
  7. Serve immediately with chips, veggies, or crackers.
  8. For best results, serve the dip right out of the pan or pot, or heat in an oven-safe serving vessel before serving.
