This simple queso dip is so easy to make, you’ll be mixing up a batch every time you turn around! Only four ingredients are required. 

I love chips and salsa, but adding some cheese makes me extra happy! I’m in the crowd that believes cheese should count as the 5th food group. I can truly make a meal of queso dip. I’ve used several recipes over the years and can’t say I’ve found one I don’t like.

This recipe is super simple, relying on #ConvenienceCooking ingredients. Two of my favorite shortcut grocery store items for this recipe are tomatoes with chiles and nacho cheese.

I just add some ground meat and sliced olives, then dip in my chips. It really doesn’t get much easier than that. This is a recipe even beginner cooks can make successfully.  The other nice things about this recipe is that it makes a fairly small supply of dip, so if you’re dining alone or with your spouse, you don’t end up with gallons of dip left over.

This dip is a great snack food for football games, #TacoTuesday or tailgate party. However, if you’re planning to serve a crowd, you’ll want to double or triple this recipe.

Make It a Meal:

I like adding simple queso dip to the table when we’re having a Mexican or Tex-Mex night. Other dishes I serve on those days include: Mushroom Quesadilla, No Bean Chili, Pineapple Salsa, and Nacho Grande Boat with Sweet Pepper Salsa.
