Does white cheese dip at Mexican restaurants tend to have a lot of carbs? I’ve fasted all day today and plan on breaking my fast with Mexican food for a Valentine’s Day celebration from my SO. I plan on eating fajitas with no tortilla and was wondering about the General carb content of the white cheese dip?
Many contain flour or corn starch etc, even if they used a straight block of Velveeta to make it, there would be way more carbs in it than you may expect. A good one to try instead is queso flameado, which is basically melty gooey love made from real cheese that is blasted with heat in a cast iron comal or skillet of some sort, served piping hot. You can usually find that dish at most Mexican restaurants and sometimes it’ll even come with an option to add fajita or taco meat to it. It’s my keto go-to since traditional queso style dip can no longer be trusted. If you’re really lucky, they’ll have chicharones aka pork rinds to serve on the side instead of chips!
