With just a few simple ingredients, you’ve got amazing queso that can be prepared on the stove top, in a slow cooker, or over a campfire.

The main ingredients are:

  • Ground beef and hot ground sausage
  • Velveeta
  • Rotel
  • Green Chilies
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Shredded White Cheese (I use Chihuahua brand Quesadilla shreds)
  • Yellow Onion, diced

To begin, crumble and brown the ground beef and hot ground sausage with the diced yellow onion.

Once totally browned, drain the fat from the meat. Add the chili powder, cumin, and salt and pepper and stir to combine.

From here, you can cook the Spicy Cheeseburger Queso Dip in a slow cooker, on the stove top, or over a campfire. I chose the slow cooker method, as we were on the road. It turns out perfectly regardless of the method you choose.

For the slow cooker, cook over low heat for 4 hours, or on high for about 2 hours. Stir a few times to help the cheese melt.
