If you liked our Chili’s Copycat Salsa Recipe, then you will love this recipe. It is so good warm so the cheese is all gooey. This makes a great appetizer or snack.
This is our go to for any family get together. Whether it’s a holiday, game night, game day, or just a family party, this dip is always made.
We make it all year long. It’s fun for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, taquitos, or any Mexican dish you are making.
If you have any leftovers (noticed I said if) you can definitely use it again on meals throughout the week. It also saves well in the fridge for a few days. You will love this simple and quick appetizer.
What could I use in place of Velveeta cheese?
This recipe calls for Velveeta Cheese. I am personally a big fan of it. I know it’s considered not a “real” cheese, but I do think it is delicious, especially in this dish.
If you are looking for a replacement, we have an easy switch.
Here is what we recommend:
- 3-4 cups sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
Bring the ingredients to a small boil over the stove top, at medium heat, stirring constantly.
Continue to make the recipe as directed, in the instructions. This will be a little thinner of a substance, so you may need to add more sharp cheddar cheese, depending on how thick you want the sauce.
We made it using 4 cups and it was thick, but still delicious. For the best results we recommend using Velveeta cheese.
What can I dip in this queso?
I am a huge queso lover. I can dip just about anything in it, and it tastes delicious.
If you are looking for more options to dip into this queso, here is what we recommend:
- Vegetables (carrots, cucumbers, celery, sweet peppers, olives, etc.).
- Spread it over burritos, enchiladas, nachos, quesadillas, etc.
- Bread sticks
- Pita Bread
- Doritos (one of the worlds best combinations).
