I am so excited to share this ooey, gooey melty cheese White Queso Dip recipe with you. I even added my favorite Cacique® beef chorizo to add some spice and zing!
Grab a chip and get ready to satisfy that cheese craving!
Chorizo queso dip is by far one of our favorite appetizers to serve in the fall. Nothing makes getting together with friends better than serving up this appetizer. Do you have a favorite appetizer you love to serve?
I have made this white queso dip recipe for years…it never goes out of style, and our friends love it. It brings back memories from when we used to live in Austin (before everyone moved there!) There was a cute little restaurant called Chuy’s. It had a very eclectic style, and they were known for their stuffed queso appetizer.
It has been years since I have gone back to Austin, but when we do get back, we ALWAYS stop by Chuy’s. I loosely base my queso fundido recipe on my memory of their stuffed queso.”
This Mexican cheese dip is probably not an authentic queso dip, but it is our family’s very favorite recipe. One thing you will notice is this is white queso. I use authentic Mexican cheese from Cacique®.
Grab a chip and dip it into this chorizo dip. Stir the chip around to blend the chorizo and tomatoes into the cheese, repeat. Scoop up some of the melty cheese, and eat. Repeat.
I know you are wishing you had a chip, so let me tell you how I make this recipe so you can make some for yourself :-).
What is typically in a queso dip?
- A melting cheese, or combination of cheeses
- Some include salsa, though I have not tried this.
The first thing I use to make queso is my favorite melting cheese, Cacique® Manchego. This cheese has a nutty earthy flavor that works beautifully with the deep spice of chorizo. Cacique® uses fresh milk that is free of rBST, so you can feel good serving it to your family and friends.
With Cacique®’s cheeses, chorizo, Mexican crema and sour creams, you can create quick and easy Mexican recipes that make it easy to savor the tastes and flavors of Mexico. This simple queso is ready in under 15 minutes!
Manchego melts perfectly for queso blanco!! If you can’t find the Manchego, look for their Oaxaca cheese. It also melts really well.”
Are you ready to learn how easy it is to make this white queso cheese dip?
The first step is to gather your ingredients. I have Cacique® Manchego and beef chorizo, and some fire roasted green chiles too.
Slice up the cheese and add it to a saucepan. This cheese is soft and really easy to cut into cubes.
Add the cheese, heavy cream, butter, and green chiles to a saucepan. Heat on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper and stir this in.
Add the Cacique® Beef Chorizo and scallions to a skillet. Cook for 10 minutes until the chorizo is cooked.
The chorizo gets creamy as it cooks.
Pour the queso fundido into a bowl and spoon the cooked chorizo on top. Add chopped cherry tomatoes and scallions.
You can vary this recipe by adding cooked vegetables to the chorizo. You can also garnish with Cacique®’s delicious flavored sour creams like their Chipotle or Cilantro Lime flavors.
Steps to Make This Easy Queso Dip:
A delicious melted cheese dip that is full of tomatoes, chorizo, and scallions
- 10 ounces manchego cheese
- 3 tablespoons roasted green chiles
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 9 ounces beef chorizo
- 1/4 cup chopped tomato

Take a medium-sized saucepan and add cubed cheese, butter, cream, chiles, and salt. Cook on low heat until the cheese is melted.
In a frying pan, add raw chorizo and half the scallions. Cook over medium heat until the chorizo is done.
Pour the cheese into a bowl. Add the chorizo mixture in the middle of the melted cheese. Top with chopped tomatoes and the remaining scallions.
