How To Make Beef Queso Dip
With little time and minimal effort this easy ground beef and queso dip will be hot and ready!
- Brown ground beef with onion and set aside
- Melt cheeses, add remaining ingredients.
- Add milk to achieve the desired consistency and serve warm with crackers, chips and other dippables.
PRO TIP: Make this recipe in the slow cooker. Simply cook the beef and onion, add to a Crockpot along with remaining ingredients. Heat on low for 2 hours, stir and serve.
- Kick up the heat by adding some chopped jalapenos from a jar.
- You could also use Monterey Jack cheese instead of cheddar. Or, consider making a white queso dip by subbing in white American cheese for the Velveeta.
- Substitute hot or mild sausage crumbles in place of the bacon and ground beef for a delicious and spicy flair!
What To Serve With Queso Dip
Serve queso dip with sturdy finger foods that will hold up to this hearty dip. Woven wheat crackers, pita chips, tortilla scoops or toasted rounds of sliced baguettes will give some welcome crunch.
A platter of raw vegetable crudités would not be out of place either, and the freshness of celery sticks or broccoli florets will pleasantly cut some of the cheesy richness.
For convenience, store leftover queso dip tightly covered in a heat-and-serve dish which will keep for up to four days in the fridge. Freeze dip in smaller portions and in air tight containers with the date on them for about 3-4 months. To thaw frozen beef queso dip, place it in the refrigerator overnight.
To reheat on the stovetop, heat on low and stir often until it combines together again.
To reheat using a microwave, heat for 20 second intervals, stirring in between until desired consistency. In each case, add a bit of cream to help get the consistency you want.
