Description

This Chile con Queso contains Velveeta and Rotel, yes, but it also incorporates meaty sausage, extra green chilies, sauteed onion, and delightfully crunchy, fresh, spicy jalapeno. Though I can pretty much guarantee it won’t show up on the syllabus at the French Culinary Institute any time soon, it’s always a crowd pleaser—especially if that crowd contains humans of the male variety.

Ingredients

  • 32 ounces, weight Velveeta Cheese Loaf
  • 10 ounces, weight Rotel
  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean Hot Breakfast Premium Pork Sausage
  • 7 ounces, weight Chopped Green Chilies
  • 1 whole Yellow Onion
  • 1 whole Jalapeno, or more to taste

Preparation

Dice the onion. Using a nonstick sprayed skillet, cook sausage and onions until brown, stirring occasionally. Once browned, drain some of the fat from the skillet.

Cube Velveeta loaf. Add cubes to browned sausage and onion mixture. Add can of Rotel (juice and all), can of green chilies (juice and all), and stir over low heat.

Cut the top and bottom off the jalapeño, slice into matchsticks, then rotate and slice to create a fine dice. (For a spicy version, leave seeds and white membranes. For a milder option, remove them.) Add to queso and stir.

Serving tip: Use a fondue pot or crock pot to serve piping hot!

I made this and the restaurant salsa today. I used the remaining lime juice and cilantro from the salsa in the queso – fabulous!

We love this dip. If we’re not having a big crowd, I throw half of it in a zip lock bag & freeze it. Works great!! It is also good over burgers or hot dogs. Thanks, Ree!

A big hit with the hubs and teenage son. It’s a great condiment with tacos and burritos!

We love this recipe! I made it New Year’s Eve and it was a hit. I love how you can control the spice. Can’t wait to make it again!

I made this for a food day at work and it’s getting rave reviews! I doubled the recipe and added 8oz. of cream cheese. Perfect for a crockpot dip and while I could stand a bit more spice, the heat is just when serving a large group. Will definitely add this to my party food rotation!
