Restaurant-Style Queso

Posted by Lori:

If we are not able to go out and eat Mexican food at a favorite place, we like to create our own versions of our favorite dishes. Queso isn't something we always order because we don't want to spend the extra money, but we sure do enjoy it when it comes complimentary with the chips and salsa. It's also fun to make queso at home and here is our favorite way to make it:

Restaurant-Style Queso

2 pound box of Velveeta
1 can Rotel - mild, regular, or Mexican-style
1 can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder

Place in crock pot and heat on warm or low. Cheese mixture can also be melted over low heat on stove top or in microwave.

Sometimes we add a can of cream of mushroom soup and some browned hamburger meat or sausage to the queso. It's great that way, too.

Hubby adds chopped onions and green peppers to his queso. It is delish!
