Beef Queso Dip
An incredibly velvety, meaty queso dip that is completely irresistible – and you can make it in just 15 minutes!
I hope you’re not getting sick of all these game day recipes because I have yet another crowd-pleasing appetizer to share with you all. It’s inspired by the beef enchilada dip I made a couple weeks ago except this one is loaded with even more cheesy, velvety goodness.
With some leftover ground beef, a block of velveeta cheese and some handful pantry ingredients, this dip comes together so quickly in one skillet in just 15 minutes. How easy is that? Just be sure to have an extra bag of tortilla chips ready to go because this dip will be disappearing very quickly among your guests!
