Chili con Queso dip: three ingredients and delicious too!

In our house, girls out number the boys. The TV is always turned onto a lifestyle or food channel, the music is usually of the “teen bop” nature, and the food..well, the food is one thing we all agree upon. I’m sure you have all had Queso Dip. Right? It’s a classic. I know I’ve been eating this dip for centuries. Well, fine, not centuries, but you get the drift. Many many years.


One pound of VELVEETA cheese and one can of undrained RO*TEL tomatoes with green chilies combined and served with tortilla chips. I added a delicious twist by adding a can of chili to this dip. If you like beans, feel free to use whatever brand or type you enjoy. I used a good, meaty chili with no beans. Actually, it’s the perfect dip to serve at YOUR next tailgating party.

Do you tailgate? What team do you follow? My family is from Chicago, so of course we’re Packers fans. Bwahahaha, kidding. We are of COURSE Bears fans. Even my girls have Bears t-shirts and jerseys. Yep, another agreement in our home. Having friends over for football though can be a little tricky. We live in the heart of Bengals country (Cincinnati) and most of our friends are Bengals fans. Fortunately, when you have good food, people aren’t really watching the game, they are standing over the big bowl of queso dip! And I’m okay with that – I may even be able to change the channel when nobody is looking!

Another great reason to make this crowd pleasing dip? Well, it not only makes enough to serve a crowd, but it’s ready in 5 minutes. One bowl, in the microwave, no cleanup necessary. I usually pour the ingredients into the bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When I’m ready to serve the dip, put the bowl (with the plastic wrap) right into the microwave. I even serve straight from this bowl. Seriously, how easy is that? Gives you more time to enjoy your guests when you aren’t slaving in the kitchen! Just in case you aren’t sure STILL how to make this recipe, yep, I made you a video. It’s a “Cheesy” video!!

  1. I love this dip because of nostalgia! Years ago, my college roommate’s mom made it for a Thanksgiving gathering, but she added so much hot pepper that no one wanted to eat it! So she made us take it home with us… it was SO HOT! But still good 😉

  2. Queso is the perfect party dip because it’s easy and quick to make, tastes wonderful, and everyone loves it.

  3. I love making Queso like this, because you can just add in whatever ingredients you want and make it as spicy or mild as you like. It’s easy to make and a crowd pleaser too.

  4. This is the BEST dip for football watching – who does not like cheese? And then you add meat and make it a little spicy – perfection!

  5. I like to mix it with crab, a little bit of bay seasoning and heat it in the microwave. It is so delicious, I have to make at least two batches at a time!!
