Queso Dip (Mexican Cheese Dip)

 

We have another Mexican Cheese Dip recipe here on the blog that we make and we do love it.  That Rotel Queso dip recipe is made with real cheeses with a few more ingredients.  And it is very delicious and if you would like to view it then see it HERE.      But sometimes you just need a great Mexican cheese dip that is easier and faster and only has two ingredients.

Yes, I said two ingredients! And you could always have these ingredients handy in case guests drop by unexpectedly since they are both shelf stable.   And we love to serve this  Queso Dip hot in a small cast iron skillet that has been heated.   

 

What is in this Nacho Cheese or Queso Dip:

 

Rotel and Velveeta

 

Ingredients:

1-10 oz can Rotel Original , chopped tomatoes and green chilies
 

To Make a Spicy Nacho Cheese Recipe

Ingredients:

1- 10 oz can Hot Rotel diced tomatoes and habaneros 
 

How to Make Queso:

 

 
Cut the Velveeta into squares and place in a medium saucepan.  Then drain the liquid from your Rotel tomatoes and add to the cheese cubes.  Heat over medium heat.
Note: if you want a thinner texture to the dip, do not drain the Rotel.
 
 
 
Stir  frequently until the cheese is completely melted and both ingredients are very well-combined.

Spoon your queso or nacho cheese dip into a warmed small cast iron skillet or casserole dish and serve with tortilla chips.   Or sometimes I will serve the hot dip in our mini crockpot so it can stay hot longer.
