Smoked Queso Dip Recipe 1

One thing my friends and family know about me is that I am obsessed with Mexican food…my favorite food is nachos, and margaritas are the way to my heart. I always love to come up with new, fun recipes when my creativity is sparked, and after a few rounds of testing and tweaking, I’m happy to share the recipe of my Smoked Queso!

Start by cooking the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Once the beef is browned, add in taco seasoning & water. Cook according to the taco seasoning packet. As the meat mixture is simmering, prep the onion and jalapeno by chopping finely and add to the disposable bakeware pan.

Next, add the shredded cheese & drained can of Rotel & cooked beef mixture to the pan. Lastly, cut the Velvetta Queso Blanco into 1″ cubes and drop them into the pan. Voila, you’re ready to smoke it! Drop a piece of tinfoil over the top & make sure your grill is ready to go.

We have a pellet grill, but you can use any grill for this recipe, although the cooking time may change depending on your grill! I cook at 375 on our pellet grill for about 35-45 minutes. Keep covered but stir every 10 minutes to ensure everything gets mixed together. If you need to thin it out, add a dash of milk on the second stir. 

You’ll know it’s ready when everything is melted & mixed well together. 

I promise this is sure to be a fan favorite for the nights on the deck this summer or your Cinco De Mayo menu!
