Queso dip recipes that include prepared ingredients, such as Rotel, range from simple two-ingredient recipes to beer queso to cheesy spinach and bacon queso. Prepared ingredients allow for quick preparation.
Famous queso dip requires only Rotel tomatoes and Velveeta cheese. To make this dip, combine 1 can of Rotel with 1 pound of diced Velveeta in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high for three minutes, stir, then cook for two minutes more. Serve with sliced vegetables or tortilla chips.
For beer queso dip, melt 1 tablespoon of margarine spread in a skillet, then cook 3/4 cup of diced yellow onion until brown. Add 1 cup of beer and simmer for two to three minutes. In a 1 1/2 quart microwave-safe dish, combine the onion mixture, 1 pound of diced Velveeta and 1 can of drained Rotel. Microwave on high for five minutes, pausing the cook time to stir after three minutes. After cooking, stir to thoroughly combine. Serve with soft pretzel pieces or assorted vegetable chunks.
Make Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Queso Dip by mixing 1 thawed and drained package of frozen chopped spinach with 1 pound of diced Velveeta cheese, 4 ounces of cubed cream cheese, 1 can of Rotel and 8 slices of cooked, crumbled bacon in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for three minutes, stir, and continue to cook for two additional minutes. Keep this dip warm in a slow cooker on low, stirring occasionally. Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables.
