This five-minute nacho cheese dip is perfect for game day, parties, or a fondue dinner. Make this cheese sauce to smother chips with or to dip in. Enjoy this creamy queso with just the right amount of heat.
This is the absolute easiest recipe to make a homemade cheese dip. Velveeta is smooth and melts wonderfully for the perfect cheese sauce. Use it to make nachos or as a fondue for veggies, sausage, bread, and more.
Cheese dip is heavenly with warm, soft pretzels. Billowy pretzel rolls, mini pretzel bites, or traditional pretzel twists are all equally satisfying dipped into a great cheese sauce. However you serve this sauce, it will surely be the centerpiece of the gathering.
This recipe is typically made with original gold Velveeta but is also excellent with Queso Blanco Velveeta. Pair the white cheese with blue corn chips for a dramatic look! Red tortilla chips would also look extremely festive with the Queso Blanco sauce.
Top nachos with sliced jalapenos, bacon crumbles, olives, beans, sour cream, and guacamole. Another way to make this dip into a whole meal is to add ground beef or ground sausage directly to the recipe.
