This smooth and creamy queso is like no other! Classic Velveeta cheese is the only way to make this addicting cheese dip recipe!



  • 1 pound pork sausage (breakfast sausage)
  • 1 pound package Mexican Velveeta Cheese (you can use regular if can’t find the Mexican variety, see note*)
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa (your favorite brand, mild or spicy)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • Diced tomatoes and scallions for garnish


  1. Add the sausage to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook while breaking up into crumbles until no pink remains in the sausage. Drain the sausage on a paper towel lined plate to remove most of the grease. Place the sausage to the bottom of a 2-3 quart crock pot.
  2. Cut the Velveeta cheese and cream cheese into cubes and add it on top of the sausage.
  3. Pour in the salsa, stir and cover. Set on high for 2 hours, stirring once in between cooking. Keep the dip warm in your slow cooker on the “keep warm” setting.
  4. Garnish with tomatoes and scallions if desired and serve with tortilla chips for dipping.

Recipe Notes

If you can’t find the Mexican variety of Velveeta cheese, you can use the regular kind. You can add in a can or diced green chilis for more heat if you like.
