Queso Dip

How often do you find yourself in a panic over what appetizer to bring to a party?  The options are endless, but ironically nothing comes to mind.  Insert this amazing queso dip recipe made with sausage and two kinds of cheese, and you have just put your party into full throttle.

Queso is beyond delicious, and this homemade queso dip takes less than 20 minutes to make and will be gone even quicker.  I don’t know about you, but making appetizers is so much easier than having to come up with a giant menu of things to make. This easy queso dip is made from scratch with real cheese.

Since we are huge sports enthusiast my husband is always looking for a reason for me to make this sausage queso dip. He loves all things cheese, but also suffers from frequent heartburn (meaning he can’t enjoy all of our favorite snacks like Crock Pot Chicken Wings or Bacon Jalapeño Cheese Ball).

Equate Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets (also referred to as ODT) from Walmart can be a game changer for heartburn, providing relief by the next day.  If you have suffered or are suffering from frequent heartburn, two or more days a week, and don’t want to give up those foods you love, such as queso or Spicy Dill Dip, Equate Omeprazole ODT can benefit you too.

Equate Omeprazole ODT is a great solution because the tablets easily dissolve on your tongue (no need to have a bottle of water handy) so it’s easy to take on the go! Relief can come in as little as 24 hours (but can take up to 1-4 days for full effect). For the best consumption experience, allow the tablet to dissolve on your tongue. Do not chew the tablets or dissolve in liquid. It has a great strawberry flavor and the size of the tablet you see on the box is the actual size. It’s an affordable option and can be conveniently purchased at Walmart which is where I do my grocery shopping anyhow!

How to Make Queso Dip

This queso dip is crazy easy to make and everyone loves it! Just a few simple steps to create a great dip!

  1. Brown the sausage and onion.
  2. Add flour, seasoning and evaporated milk until thick and bubbly.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients and cheese until melted.
  4. Enjoy!

So easy! I use cheddar because I love the flavor but any kind of cheese will work in this recipe! I love to top this with a fresh Pico de Gallo but store bought salsa will work well too! If you’d prefer to make this a beef queso dip, you can substitute the sausage for ground beef.

    1. Hi Kristy, we have only made this recipe as listed. You could definitely use a crockpot once it is made to keep it warm and melted! If you do try making it in the crockpot let us know how it turns out!

    1. We usually gobble this one up before it even cools. But it should reheat fine the next day Amy. Let us know if you try!

    1. Either breakfast sausage or Italian sausage would work in this recipe. Hot Italian sausage can be used and adds great flavor too.

  1. My son loves Mexican food and said you could find this queso in a fancy restaurant, so we’re giving it five stars. Just one question…are you supposed to drain the tomatoes?

  2. Made this for a party and it was delicious! Only downside, the jalapeños I bought were not very spicy! Any tips on picking the best jalapeños? I always feel like its hit or miss!

    1. So glad you enjoyed them Samantha!! I love a lot of heat so that was such an interesting question!!

      According to Wikipedia, Jalapenos can have small brown lines (called ‘corking’) and the more brown lines, the more heat they have! I’m going to test a few next time I go to the store!
