How often do you find yourself in a panic over what appetizer to bring to a party? The options are endless and this easy queso dip recipe fits the bill!
It’s made with sausage (I love spicy Italian) and two kinds of cheese for a flavorful dip that everyone will love!
The great thing about this queso dip is that it takes less than 20 minutes to make. If serving at a party, it can easily be prepped ahead and reheated just before serving (or keep it warm in a mini slow cooker if you have one). The perfect addition to our appetizer table alongside Crock Pot Chicken Wings and Jalapeno Poppers).
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!
- Brown the sausage and onion (per recipe below).
- Add flour, seasoning and evaporated milk until thick and bubbly.
- Stir in the remaining ingredients and cheese until melted.
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.
Equate Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets (also referred to as ODT) 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!
Taking Omeprazole ODT is simple, 1 dose every 24 hours for 14 days. Do not take Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets for more than 14 days and do not exceed more than every four months unless directed to do so by your Physician.
Can I use corn starch in place of the flour for my gluten free family?
We have only made the recipe as listed but you could try gluten-free flour or cornstarch. Let us know how it turns out!
Hello! Could drained/thawed frozen spinach be added?
That sounds like a tasty addition Lisa!
Will this work in the crock pot?
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!
Does this reheat well? I’d like to make it for tomorrow and just reheat in a crockpot!
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!
Can you use chopped pepperoni in place of sausage?
That sounds like a delicious idea!
When you’re talking sausage in this recipe, are you talking breakfast sausage or what?
Either breakfast sausage or Italian sausage would work in this recipe. Hot Italian sausage can be used and adds great flavor too.
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?
We don’t drain them but if you wanted a thicker consistency you definitely could!
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!
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!
What kind of sausage is used in the easy Queso dip?
Bulk sausage of your favorite type. Enjoy Teresa!
