Description

Make the viral smoked queso dip in under 30 minutes! No charcoal grill or wood pellets necessary! It’s easy, delicious, and a total crowd pleaser! 

 


Ingredients

Scale

20 oz Velveeta

4 oz Cheddar cheese, shredded

4 oz Mexican Cheese blend

2 tsp liquid smoke

1 jalapeno, diced

1 small onion, diced

10 oz  chorizo

1 cup salsa

3 cloves garlic, minced


Instructions

Heat olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo or sausage and cook until browned, about 5-8 minutes, crumbling the chorizo or sausage as it cooks. Drain the excess fat; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the cast-iron skillet. Place in pre-heated oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, stir until well combined.  Spoon into serving dish, or serve right from the cast iron skillet!


Notes

Pop it under the broiler for a few minutes at the end if you like those crispy golden brown cheese bits.

Take out the jalapeno seeds if you’re not a fan of the extra heat

Store leftovers in an air tight container for up to a week.
