Slow-Cooker Queso

Updated: Dec 7, 2020

We moved to Utah on Sunday to stay with family for a couple of weeks until we move to Texas. The move was very adventurous. We started the day off with a nail in the moving truck. The company sent out someone to fix the tire. When the guy came to fix the tire, he started fixing a different tire. Kevin told him that was the wrong tire; the guy said I have to fix this tire, or you will have a blowout while driving. Then the guy found a screw in another tire. The guy only had two tires, and he said that if he couldn't patch the screw, he would have to drive to Sacramento to get another tire. Luckily, he was able to patch one tire and change two tires.

This was my first time driving from California to Utah by myself, so Kevin had his sister follow me in case she needed any help. Karina wanted to wait to get gas in Winnemucca because it was .10 cents cheaper. She called me when she had 7 miles to Winnemucca and said her car says she has 0 miles to empty. She said, why not make this trip memorable. Luckily, she made it to the gas station because I don't know how long it would have taken me to get gas and get back to her car.

Do you have any crazy traveling stories?

Taraleigh, I am reading your comments. I still can't figure out how to respond to them. There is an inbox, but it only shows the first comment you wrote. I have never had or seen green spinach crepes. Do they taste like spinach?

Have you ever had the Queso at Chili's? The Queso and Salsa are my favorite things at Chili's. If you're like me and you love Queso, you've probably tried a lot of recipes trying to find a really good recipe. Guess what? I found it! My kids don't like spicy things, and this isn't very spicy. If you want more spice, add the jalapeños. This seriously is so good. 

When I found this recipe, I had to try it because it is made with ground beef instead of sausage. I'm not a huge sausage fan, so this was perfect for me. This recipe is straightforward; you can throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker and stir every once in a while. I will eat this by itself for any meal because it is so yummy!



1 pound ground beef

1 tablespoon dried onions

2/3 cup water

2 tablespoon taco seasoning

32 ounces Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes

2 (10 oz) cans mild Rotel

1 large (or 2 small jalapeños, seeded and finely minced) Optional, for spicy Queso


In a skillet, brown the ground beef; while beef is cooking, chop the hamburger into small pieces. Meanwhile, place the Velveeta in the slow cooker on low. Add remaining ingredients to the slow cooker. Once the meat is cooked, drain the fat and add it to the slow cooker. Heat for 1 to 2 hours on low and set to warm when the cheese has melted. Serve warm.
