Queso Dip is an incredible and flavorful creamy dip that brings a warm fiesta to feel to the table. Enjoy it as an appetizer or munch on this queso dip and tortilla chips as a snack. There is no wrong way to enjoy a good queso dip recipe.

Queso Cheep Dip

There is probably nothing better than cheese, but when you add in a variety of melted cheeses to a bowl and add in tomatoes, chilis, beans, and spices, you’re looking at a winning dish that you will enjoy eating for hours (if you can restrain yourself that long).

Grabbing a jar of queso from a store is fine and dandy, but making your own at home gives you that feeling of accomplishment mixed with that satisfaction of adjusting flavors to accommodate what YOU want. Omit the beans if you’re on a no legume diet or add in more spices if you want it hotter. You don’t get that kind of control when you buy a jar from the store! 

While this dish is packed with flavors, I understand that fiesta flavored dishes may not be for everyone. So, if you’d like a more subtle flavored queso dip without all of the added flavors, you can check out my other queso dip recipe. It’s delicious, easy, and full of super cheesy goodness.
