The Best Crockpot Cheesy Queso Dip!

Who doesn’t love a quick and easy appetizer recipe? Especially when it involves cheese and sausage! This  ridiculously easy Crockpot Cheesy Queso Dip recipe is just right for any party, game day or quick weeknight meal. You can serve it up as a dip paired with tortilla chips or even pita chips. Use it as a topping for a nacho or baked potato bar. How ever you decide to serve this Cheesy Queso Dip, your guest will be begging you for the recipe.

The first time I tried this dip, my girlfriend brought it into work. I was hesitant at first because I am not a huge fan of sausage. Once I tried it, I was hooked! Nothing in this recipe is over powering, everything blends together perfectly for a smooth and creamy cheese sauce/dip. It is now a favorite at our house and is on our weekly menu plan a few times a month.


 

Here is how we put it together …

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground sausage
  • 1 Tbs. Chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 16oz. jar Pace salsa
  • 1 32 oz. block Velveetta cheese

In a medium skillet, brown the sausage and drain all excess fat.

Cube the Velveeta cheese, this will make the cheese melt faster and more even in the crockpot.

Combine all of the ingredients in your crockpot.

Turn it on low and let everything melt together. Stirring occasionally. If the mixture is to thick, you can thin it out with a little milk.  This usually takes about an hour.

Serve as a dip or over chips for nachos. This also makes an excellent baked potato topping!
