How Do You Make Queso With Ground Beef?


To make queso with ground beef, gather processed cheese, such as Velveeta, milk, ground beef, taco seasoning and several cans of diced tomatoes and green chile peppers. This recipe takes about an hour and a half to make.

In a slow cooker, put 1 pound of processed cheese and 1/2 cup of milk. In a large skillet, cook 2 pounds of ground beef until it is brown and crumbly. Discard the grease and stir in 4 10-ounce cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles and a package of taco seasoning. Bring this mixture to a boil, and then transfer it to the slow cooker. Stir this together with the milk and cheese, and turn the slow cooker up to the high setting. Cook until the cheese has melted, usually about an hour.

This recipe has a rating of 4 out of 5 stars, as of 2015. There are also some reviewer suggestions available including lining the slow cooker with a liner for easy clean up. Another suggestion is to substitute salsa for the diced tomatoes with green chiles. Some reviewers also state that the queso dip was too runny, so suggestions include draining the tomatoes before putting them in the slow cooker or omitting the milk. Though this dip is great with nacho chips, people also suggest putting it on baked potatoes.
