This is so delicious! I've always wanted to try making my own queso sauce at home because the jarred kind just doesn't do it for me and melting Velveeta and salsa is ok, but sometimes I crave fresher cheeses. The recipes I saw always seemed complicated though, so I always chickened out. I finally tried it today and psh, I can't believe it scared me for so long! It was a piece of cake! It's a little bit more work than the Velveeta option, but the flavor is so worth it! I'll be making this all the time now that I know it's so easy. My friends are busy gobbling it down right now!

How to Make Quesoriffic Dip

Step-by-Step

  1. In medium-large saucepan, saute sausage over medium heat until browned. Scoop out sausage with slotted spoon and set aside. Add olive oil and sautee onion until translucent. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute more, or until fragrant.
  2. Sprinkle in flour. Stir until browned and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Slowly add beer, stirring constantly. Stir in lime juice and minced peppers. Cook for 2 or 3 more minutes, stirring often.
  3. Slowly add milk, stirring quickly to combine. Cook for 3 more minutes, stirring often to eliminate lumps (use a whisk if necessary). Add in cheese, stirring constantly to prevent clumping. Stir in dashes of chili powder, paprika, and salt.
