ALDI – Casa Mamita – Salsa Con Queso – Medium – Food Review

Uniquely dippable, even straight out of the refrigerator, that’s what this product is.  Some might call it thin, but that depends on your needs and likes.  The consistency is almost as fluid when cold as at room temperature.  If you like your nachos hot, it also heats up well in the microwave on tortilla chips.  Little pieces of jalapeno in the yellow/orange cheese add the heat which is about right for the claimed medium rating on the label.  Unless you get a little piece of jalapeno, it’s not very spicy at all.

However, if you’d like to use this for cooking, read more. Chips and dip was not the reason I bought this.  I wanted to use it in my breakfast wrap recipe in place of ALDI’s Clancy’s Cheese Dip.  I also replaced the bacon in the wrap recipe with Trader Joe’s Soy Chorizo.  I was expecting a nice additive flavor pop for breakfast.  Surprisingly, the two seemed to cancel each other out leaving a somewhat mild breakfast wrap.  The wrap was more edgy than the bacon/cheese version, but not up to the expectation.

The real disappointment was the mess the con queso salsa created.  While the cheese dip is thick and sort of sticky, the con queso salsa is thin and almost runny making it much too easy to get on the counter and find its way off the tortilla.  It also was not good at “cementing” the egg and chorizo in place allowing some of egg and chorizo to escape the wrap.  Eventually it worked out okay but with a little more cleanup than I like.
