Beef n’ Queso Dip – Spicy queso dip with green chiles and tasty seasoned ground beef! This recipe is so easy and comes together in just 25 minutes!
Ohhhh cheesey queso goodness, how I love you!!! This is possibly my new favorite dip in the entire world!!
When I was dating my husband, he told me about his brother’s famous queso dip. Apparently it was fantastic and “the best ever”. So I tried it. And it was realllllly good. I actually loved it and would beg him to make it as often as possible. But this week I made my own queso dip and the husband tried it…. and said… it was BETTER than his brother’s!
It’s so cheesy and gooey and wonderful! It’s got a little kick from the spices but nothing that would light your mouth on fire. Just lots and lots of Mexican flavor! Adding the beef to the mix made the whole dip a little more hearty and I may or may not have just eaten this queso dip for my entire dinner…. sh!!! But it’s that good!!! And sooooo easy! Take this dip to your next party, it’s sure to be a hit!!!
