Queso is a popular dip that is perfect for serving at parties, family gatherings, or as a snack. It is a creamy and cheesy sauce that can be made in many different ways. Here is a simple and easy queso recipe that can be ready in just a few minutes!
Making An Easy Queso for Parties
The Superbowl is just around the corner and our family is excited. We used to have large Superbowl parties when we were first married but then our friends and I had too many kids and the house just became smaller and smaller feeling each year as kids crawled over us as we tried to watch.
We also opt for simple recipes like queso dips and finger foods. This simple and easy queso recipe can be made in a matter of minutes and is sure to be a hit at your next party or gathering. If you prefer it spicier, you can add additional chili powder or even diced jalapenos. You can also switch up the cheese for a different flavor, or add in ingredients such as sausage, chicken, or beans. The possibilities are endless!

What If My Queso Starts to Thicken?
Note: If your recipe starts to thicken too much, simply add a little more milk to thin it out. You can also keep it warm in a slow cooker on low heat, which is perfect for a party or gathering.
Ready to Eat in Minutes
This recipe is a delicious and easy dip that can be made in many different ways. With this simple and easy queso recipe, you can have a delicious snack ready in just a few minutes. So, give it a try and enjoy!
- 1 lb lean ground beef or bison (you could substitute chicken or turkey too).
- 1 14.5 oz can cream of chicken soup (I used Health Valley organic)
- 1 14.5 oz can cream of mushroom soup (I used Health Valley organic)
- 1 10 oz can mild enchilada sauce
- 1 4.5 oz can mild diced green chiles
- 1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used Cabot 1%)
- 1 cup salsa
- Turn on stove to medium heat. In a large sauce pan, pour approximately one tablespoon of olive oil. Place the meat in the pan and with a spatula break up the meat as much as you can into little pieces. Cook on the stove, stirring meat frequently until meat is browned and no pink remains. To check for doneness, break open some of the larger pieces of meat and check for any signs of pink. Remove meat from the stove and drain meat and fat in a colander. Rinse for one minute with hot water.
- Once water has drained from the meat, pour the meat back into the saucepan. Set the heat to low medium and pour the soups, green chiles, enchilada sauce, black beans, shredded cheese and salsa into the saucepan and heat until warm and cheese melts, stirring occasinally. If sauce looks too thin, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken. Pour queso into serving bowls and serve with chips.
- Optional Cooking Directions: After meat has been browned and drained, pour meat, soups, enchilada sauce, green chiles, black beans, cheese and salsa into a crockpot and heat on high for one hour or low for 1-2 hours until cheese has been melted. Stir once or twice during cooking to incorporate the cheese.
I saw this on SITS Girls' Saturday Sharefest and had to come over and take a look! I love that it can be a dip or a casserole....and that you can fix it in the crockpot if you want. Thanks for a great time-saver recipe!
