Game Day Cheeseburger Con Queso Dip

Cheeseburger Con Queso

Are you ready for the Big Game this Sunday? Trademarks prevent me from referring to it as any more than this, but I think you know what I'm talking about...

You know, The Game that some people watch for the football, while others watch for the halftime show, and still others (like me) watch for the commercials. I think I probably watch more commercials on this single night than the rest of the year combined. Love my DVR!

Regardless of why you're watching, snacks are always appreciated, and easy dip recipes make snacking simple and delicious... And they just don't get much easier than this cheeseburger con queso dip.

Queso Dip Ingredients

My cheeseburger con queso is a simple take on the classic Velveeta Rotel Queso Dip. But instead of using the traditional yellow Velveeta, I used the Velveeta Queso Blanco, a mild and creamy white cheese, and added browned ground beef, along with the Rotel.

Cheeseburger Queso Dip

I love how the hamburger helps stretch this dip to feed a hungry crowd, while still keeping this a budget-friendly, easy-to-prepare recipe. All of the ingredients, including a large bag of tortilla chips, clocked in at under $15 at Walmart!

Cheeseburger Con Queso Dip

Yield: 6 cups

Cheeseburger Con Queso Dip


  • 1-lb. ground beef
  • 1 (32-oz.) Velveeta Queso Blanco
  • 2 (10-oz.) cans Rotel
  • 4 green onions, chopped

  1. Brown ground beef, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Drain grease.
  2. Cut Velveeta Queso Blanco into large chunks, and combine with Rotel and browned ground beef.
  3. Warm in a saucepan over low heat, in a microwaveable safe bowl in the microwave, or in a slow cooker on low until melted, stirring frequently.
  4. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.

Looks awesome! We make a very similar dip every year for Super Bowl, but use Neese Country Sausage (a local NC company) to kick it up even more. Can’t really go wrong with queso + Rotel. Ever.

This is an all-time favorite dip for me. I love it!

This is so good, I make it for game days. I also add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, you don’t taste it but it really helps keep the cheese dip
soft and creamy. I put it in all my cheese dips. I also season the ground beef with some cumin and fajita seasoning, just enough to give it a little Mexican kick and garnish it with cilantro.


Tara September 11, 2013 at 10:04 am

The mushroom soup sounds like a fantastic idea, Susan! I will definitely have to try that.
