Description

This queso recipe is extremely creamy, cheesy, hearty and WONDERFUL. I get requests for it from friends and family every time there is a get-together. There is a ‘secret’ ingredient in it that I think makes a yummy difference.

Ingredients

  • 1 block (32 Oz. Block) Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 package (8 Oz. Package) Cream Cheese
  • 1 can (10 Oz. Can) Rotel
  • 1 can (10.75 Oz. Can) Cream Of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 pound Ground Beef OR Sausage (or A Combination Of Both)

Preparation

Brown ground beef or sausage (or both) in a pan over medium heat and set aside. Cut up the Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes and place into a crock pot. Pour in the Rotel and the cream of mushroom soup and stir ingredients together. Place the crock pot on low setting for an hour, letting the ingredients meld. After about 30 minutes, add the browned meat and continue to let cook, stirring as needed.

Is the cream of mushroom soup condensed or prepared with water? I need to make this for a party in a couple hours. I’m worried if I use the condensed, the whole dish will be too salty. Do I make the soup with water before adding it to the other ingredients?

Made this for an office party. I made a double batch – which was way too much, but what wasn’t eaten there was taken home by co-workers. The next party, it was requested that I make it again. Just made one batch but with a few differences. Used Velveeta’s Queso Blanco, Rotel with lime & cilantro, Cream of Mushroom soup with roasted garlic. There was none left. Think I’ll make a double batch for our next family reunion. For those who don’t like mushrooms – don’t worry. I don’t like mushrooms either, You won’t taste the mushroom. These ingredients blend together for a delicious, tasty treat.

I made this for a neighborhood pot luck dinner. Everyone loved it. I added two cans of hot rotel and a pound of burger. It had just the right amount of “kick”. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that we will enjoy for years to come!

This Queso was very good. I was out of Cream of Mushroom soup so I used Cream of Chicken. It was a little mild for my family even with Hot Sausage I think next time I will add a can of green chiles as well. Pretty close to a copy of Charleston’s Queso…which we love.
