Ingredients for Velveeta Queso Recipe With Ground Beef
Who doesn’t love a good Rotel dip recipe?! I mean, they’re always a huge hit, and this easy hamburger dip recipe made with a can of Rotel tomatoes is no exception…
My beef queso dip is a simple take on the classic Velveeta Rotel dip. But instead of using the regular yellow Velveeta, I use the Velveeta queso blanco, a mild and creamy white cheese. Then I add browned ground beef, along with the Rotel, and some chopped green onions for a bit of bite.
That’s right — this cheesy Rotel dip with beef is just FOUR ingredients, and SOOOOOO creamy and delicious!
Here’s What You Need:
browned ground beef — I purchase all of my ground beef from ButcherBox. All of their ground beef is 100% grass-fed & grass-finished from cows that are humanely raised with no added hormones and no antibiotics ever. In other words, it’s super high quality and actually very affordable, especially when they offer their Ground Beef Blast deals. That’s when I always stock my freezer, because it works out to just $6 per pound!!
Velveeta queso blanco — Velveeta queso blanco has a milder flavor than regular Velveeta. It melts to a super smooth and creamy consistency, and makes the best white queso dip (in my opinion)… This Velveeta hamburger dip recipe wouldn’t be the same without it!
Rotel tomatoes & green chilies — Rotel is such a classic way to add great flavor to any cheesy dip. The original variety, which features zesty tomatoes and green chilies, is pretty mild, but they do also offer an actual mild Rotel variety if you prefer absolutely no heat. On the other hand, they also offer a Serrano Rotel variety — just in case you really want to spice this Velveeta queso recipe up!
chopped green onions –green onions provide some freshness and a little bite in this simple recipe. The green parts are a little milder, with the white parts being more pungent. I use a combo of both mixed into the dip, while reserving some of the greens to sprinkle over the top before serving.
BTW, check out this spicy sausage dip, if you’re looking for a cheese dip with meat that’s a little spicier than this Velveeta cheeseburger dip recipe…
How To Make Velveeta Cheese Dip
Whether you choose to make this Velveeta cheese dip recipe on the stove top or in your crock pot, I think you’ll agree that it’s as easy as can be!
1| Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium high heat, breaking it up into small pieces as it’s cooking. One of these ground meat choppers really simplifies this step! When the hamburger meat is sufficiently browned, drain off any excess grease.
2| If you’re planning to prepare this Velveeta queso recipe on the stovetop, just leave the browned hamburger in the skillet and dump in 2 cans of Rotel.
If you’re moving the hamburger cheese dip to your slow cooker, transfer the browned ground beef to the crockpot insert, and dump the 2 cans of Rotel in with it. BTW, I highly recommend first lining the insert with these disposable slow cooker liners for easy clean-up!
3| Add the cubed blocks of Velveeta queso blanco to the hamburger Rotel mixture. Cook over medium-low heat on the stovetop until fully combined, stirring frequently.
If you’re preparing this queso dip with meat in the crockpot, the cook time will vary. Simply choose any heat setting based on how soon you plan to serve this Velveeta queso recipe. Just make sure turn it down to “keep warm” after the Velveeta is fully melted to avoid scorching the ground beef cheese dip.

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.
