Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s & Sunday’s – The Only Queso Recipe You’ll Ever Need

One of the first things I learned upon moving to Texas years and years ago, was how to make queso (a.k.a. cheese dip).  This is the recipe that was given to me and can also be found inside the Velveeta cheese package.


1 log Velveeta cheese (it melts better than a hunk of cheddar)

1 can Ro-tel Diced Tomato’s and Green Chilies



Pour the Ro-tel into crock pot.  Cut Velveeta into cubes and put in crock pot.  Turn crock pot to low.  Let melt stirring occasionally.  Once melted keep it on low and spoon over a plate full of tortilla chips.

Beef It Up

Brown 1 lb ground sausage while the Ro-tel and Velveeta are melting.  Once the ground sausage is browned, add it to the dip and stir.  Let the deep continue to cook over low heat until the sausage is heated through.

Spoon over chips and enjoy with your favorite cold beverage.

P.S.  It is good to have the ingredients on hand during winter as this makes a great dish when you have a cold.   Add 2 cans Ro-tel to clear out the congestion.

It also makes a great filling for omelette.
