The Ultimate Queso Bean Dip

Party food is so much fun to develop….and even more fun to eat. My family enjoys Mexican food on so many times during the week, it’s hands down some of our favorite food to enjoy as a family.

I put together two of our favorite things…homemade queso dip and bean dip. Wait until they are combined and baked to perfection. It’s a match made in bean dip heaven. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any party with hungry guests. This one does not disappoint. Hope you enjoy!

Homemade Queso Recipe

To make homemade queso, you’ll start with a simple roux. Melt butter and whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Next, you’ll whisk in some heavy cream until thickened then stir in the cheese.

Stir in a 10 ounce can of diced tomatoes with green chile to your cheese sauce.

Stir in your queso sauce right to the beans. Magic is about to take place 🙂

I transferred the dip to individual baking dishes, but you can use a 9×13 inch baking dish just as well.

Top with additional cheese!

Perfect. Now bake until melty and hot.

There’s the ticket. Now go grab some great tortilla chips and dig in!

Yah, that’s pretty much what heaven looks like. Enjoy!
