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. 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.

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!
