Five simple ingredients will transform your standard every day queso dip into an appetizer fit for a tailgating bash for cheese lovers. All you’ve got to do is start with meltable cheese and add Ortega Taco Sauce – I’m especially crazy about their Green Tomato and Tomatillo Taco Sauce! – along with Ortega Diced Green Chiles, Ortega Black Beans, and a bit of salt in a microwave-safe bowl. A few minutes in the microwave will give you super melty and creamy cheese dip loaded with flavor, ready for devouring.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 24 people


  • 6 large flour tortillas
  • cooking spray or olive oil
  • 16 ounces meltable cheese dip, cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ounce bottle Ortega Mild Green Taco Sauce
  • 2 cans Ortega Diced Green Chiles
  • 1 can Ortega Black Beans
  • chopped cilantro for garnish
  • tortilla chips, crackers, or veggies for serving


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a regular size muffin tin (not mini). Use a large circle cookie cutter to cut out 24 circles from the tortillas and gently press them into the muffin tins to form tortilla bowls. (You can also use the lid of a large jar and a knife if you don't have a cookie cutter) Spray the tortillas with cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Bake in preheated oven for 6-8 minutes until browned around the edges (watch closely so they don't burn). 
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl combine meltable cheese cubes, taco sauce, and green chiles. Microwave for 4 minutes, stir, return to microwave for 1 minute at a time as needed until cheese is completely melted and easy to stir. Stir in black beans and salt. 
  • Spoon queso dip into baked tortilla bowls. Top with chopped cilantro if desired and serve immediately with tortilla chips or veggies for dipping.

What sort of cheese did you use…when I read it, I was thinking Velveeta, but your dip looks almost white in color, so wondering if you used some other kind? Thanks so much!

    Hi Ryb – I used a velveeta queso blanco which is just a white version of their original cheese. either one will work great, I just wanted the white coloring instead of orange.

5 stars
brilliant idea, no need for a crowded dip bowl with a congested mess, everyone has their own serving, love it and thank you!

Do you think I could use wonton wrappers Instead of tortillas?

    Yes- just cook accordingly for those instead of following my instructions for the tortillas. 🙂
