Chicken Sausage Queso

Sausage Queso Dip

Everyone loves a good queso dip and it’s helpful to have an easy recipe in your pocket this time of year. This creamy sausage queso dip comes together quick and is a real crowd pleasing appetizer. I like it because you can make it ahead of time, pour it into your cast iron skillet or baking dish, and throw it into the oven just before your guests arrive.

Cook the sausage and some onion, then add evaporated milk.

Next goes the cheese!

So good! The burner is off when you add the cheese but it mostly melts just from the residual heat. The rest will be taken care of in the oven.

Pour it into the baking dish or cast iron skillet and chill for later or bake right away.

Serve with lots of pita chips!

I like to garnish it with jalapenos, more sausage, salsa, and even some cilantro, but the possibilities are endless! Sour cream, avocado, or pickled onion would be great as well.

If you pull this out of the oven as your first guests are arriving, it won’t last long!
