The BEST Cheese Dip

Stop what you are doing and get the ingredients to make The ULTIMATE Queso. This is hands-down the BEST cheese dip EVER! Rotel dip loaded with sausage, chili beans, cream cheese, and spices. OMG! YUM! I made this earlier this week and LOVED it! I actually ended up eating this queso dip for lunch. It was so good that I couldn't stop eating it!

How To Make The Ultimate Queso

This recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Ally Dorrough. I met Ally last year when I went to Gulf Shores. We follow each other on social media and she messaged me last weekend about this dip. She said it was great and she wasn't lying.

The Ultimate Queso is super easy to make. You can make this cheese dip on the stove, in the microwave or in the slow cooker. All cooking methods start with browning sausage. Once the sausage is cooked, add the rest of the ingredients - Velveeta, cream cheese, chili beans, diced tomatoes and green chiles, chili powder, and cumin. Cook until the cheeses are melted. This will take a few minutes in the microwave or stove and a couple of hours on LOW in the crockpot.

Tips for Making The ULTIMATE Queso

I used a roll Hot Jimmy Dean Sausage. You can brown the sausage ahead of time and refrigerate it until you are ready to make the queso dip. If you aren't a fan of sausage, you can substitute ground beef or ground turkey.

I used a can of regular Rotel diced tomates and green chiles. If you prefer the dip to be spicer, use a can of HOT Rotel. If you want a milder dip, use a can of MILD Rotel or a can of plain diced tomatoes. If the dip starts to get too thick, add about a 1/2 cup of milk to thin it out.
