I’m going to tell you a little secret, that you have to promise to still be my friend after I tell you.

I. Hate. Onions.

Always have, always will. I never really cared much for queso because it always had big fat onions in it. Until this one day…years ago…I was introduced to this Easy 4 Ingredient Queso with no trace of onions in site. I fell in love….hard. I make it often. It’s my “go to” appetizer to take to parties, and to gobble up for a lunch meal the day after. Everyone loves this stuff.

I’ve thought about sharing this recipe a few times, and then just plum forgot. Today is the day, my friends. So simple and easy, and there is a secret ingredient that might sound weird, but trust me…it’s all part of the goodness.

Easy Queso recipe using Velveeta Block cheese and 3 other ingredients.
Course: Appetizer
Servings: 12
Author: Kristen Duke
  • 1 2 lb. block Velveeta cheese
  • 1 lb. ground sausage
  • 1 16 oz. can diced green chilies/tomatoes
  • 1 16 oz. can cream of mushroom soup
  1. Cook the ground sausage, then cut up Velveeta block into cubes and cook on the stovetop until melted. Stirring constantly. Once cheese is melted, add a can of green chili's/tomatoes and small can of cream of mushroom soup. Stir all together until warm.
  2. You can use a glass dish and cook in microwave as an alternative
  3. You can also use ground beef if sausage is too spicy
  4. Plan tomatoes is diced chillies are too spicy

The cream of mushroom soup is the secret random ingredient. I don’t generally care for mushrooms (I’m starting to sound picky) but it works in this recipe for me. It keeps the queso creamy, and less likely to harden on top like a lot of queso’s do.

This recipe has a little kick to it from the chili’s and a bit from the ground sausage, so if that isn’t your style,  you can substitute it for ground beef and tomatoes. That’s what my mom does, she doesn’t like spicy.

I love the convenience of using the Velveeta block cheese because it can hang out in my pantry until it’s ready to use. The 2 canned ingredients as well. The sausage keeps in the fridge or freezer, so I often keep all 4 ingredients on hand for emergencies, or just late night cravings. Go ahead, try it, you’ll see how easy it is!!

Velveeta Logo1Velveeta asked me if I knew any Liquid Gold Diggers. I’ll know more soon once they taste these dishes! Why? Because Liquid Gold Diggers love the Liquid Gold of Velveeta.
