Cinco De Mayo Trailer Trash Queso

Ok it's almost that time of year when everyone goes a little Mexican crazy. I get it, tacos, burritos, margaritas and chips and salsa are all awesome. And Cinco de Mayo is our excuse to enjoy them. It's incredible.

Queso Dip is one of those things that represents all the things I love about Tex-Mex foods. Tex-Mex is honestly my go to flavor profile for Mexican food. It's just like the all American Mexican food. And as much as I love original versions of ethic foods, I love the American versions of a variety of ethic foods because I'm American and I grew up with them, And I refuse to be sorry about it cause lets face it, delicious is delicious.

So every food blog on the web (well not every) has a version of this dip. And there's a reason. It's delicious. I mean it's as white trash and easy as you can get, but it's delicious. Did I say it's delicious. it's the sorta, gotta make a lot and don't plan on eating anything else for dinner sort of good.

White Trash Nachos

1 pound block Velveta Cheese cut up into cubes
1 can hormel Chili NO Beans
1 jar Pace's Picante Sauce or Rotel

Pour into a pot together and slowly bring up to simmer on low. Let it all melt together stirring slowly and cook until all melted and well mixed together.

Get yourself some Frito Dippers and dig in. Oh my goodness it's good.


  1. This recipe is good but if you want a great one add a few things to this. I always made it this way until living in NM. Brown 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 cup frozen hatch green chiles (they now carry at Trader Joes), add 2 cans of cheddar cheese soup, add 14 oz can of tomatoes with juice (just squish up tomatoes well with hands). I still add a can of rotel. This version is more flavorful and doesn't taste as salty. This is the version I picked up from a great friend in NM.

  2. Thanks for the tip! I will definitely give that a try sounds delish!
