Easy 4 Ingredient Queso with Velveeta Block Cheese

I’m going to tell you a little secret, that you have to promise to still be my friend after I tell you.

I. Hate. Onions.

Always have, always will. I never really cared much for queso because it always had big fat onions in it. Until this one day…years ago…I was introduced to this Easy 4 Ingredient Queso with no trace of onions in site. I fell in love….hard. I make it often. It’s my “go to” appetizer to take to parties, and to gobble up for a lunch meal the day after. Everyone loves this stuff.

I’ve thought about sharing this recipe a few times, and then just plum forgot. Today is the day, my friends. So simple and easy, and there is a secret ingredient that might sound weird, but trust me…it’s all part of the goodness.

The cream of mushroom soup is the secret random ingredient. I don’t generally care for mushrooms (I’m starting to sound picky) but it works in this recipe for me. It keeps the queso creamy, and less likely to harden on top like a lot of queso’s do.

This recipe has a little kick to it from the chili’s and a bit from the ground sausage, so if that isn’t your style,  you can substitute it for ground beef and tomatoes. That’s what my mom does, she doesn’t like spicy.

I love the convenience of using the Velveeta block cheese because it can hang out in my pantry until it’s ready to use. The 2 canned ingredients as well. The sausage keeps in the fridge or freezer, so I often keep all 4 ingredients on hand for emergencies, or just late night cravings. Go ahead, try it, you’ll see how easy it is!!

  1. In the SOUTH we call that Rotel dip. It is a must at any family function. It is just as good without the soup or the sausage.

    Ihavent seen this variety of home made queso yet.
    I’ll be all over it this weekend – Thanks for sharing!

  3. I hate onions too… actually I´ll eat something that has them, but I have a profound dislike of them… garlic I truly hate :)

    The recipe looks great!

    What if you substituted COM for Cream of Chicken and instead of using any kind of meat, add half a packet of taco seasoning? Would that be horrible? I’m going to try it and let everyone know how it goes. (I’d use mushroom, but I don’t have any in the pantry lol)

    • Stephanie says:

      Ok, so I went ahead and made it. Half a block of regular velveeta, 10 oz can or Rotel, 10 oz of Cream of CHICKEN, and about 1/3 of a taco seasoning packet. I’ve been making velveeta with picante for years and wanted to try something different. I live in Texas and everyone is like ROTEL, ROTEL, ROTEL, but I’ve always thought it was too bland. That soup and taco seasoning made the PERFECT kick. Thank you so much for the recipe base because I had no idea you could put soup in the cheese before reading this. I can’t wait to try it with COM whenever I get some more!
