White "cheese dip" in Chicago?

emiliewasmyeve | Feb 19, 200909:04 AM     15

I've posted before about how, for good or for ill, Chicago doesn't have the Mexican food that I grew up with in the South. A whole gang of us ex-Southerners are living in the city and constantly searching for one thing: the white "cheese dip" that is a staple at every Mexican restaurant south of Kentucky. I've tried asking for "queso blanco" and it just isn't the same.

When I was home a few weeks ago, I snapped a photo of what I'm looking for. Any ideas where I can get this in the city?
