Grilling Essential | Velveeta

Summer is upon us and we are looking for every opportunity to soak up the sunshine and gather up our friends and families. Whether it’s a Fourth of July cookout or sitting with friends on a patio– we love any excuse to pair food, friends, and warm weather.

When hosting an outdoor gathering or cookout with friends, keep it simple! One dip that’s sure to win everyone over? Classic queso dip with Velveeta. It’s a foolproof way to ensure your summer celebration is one for the books. Best part? It takes less than 10 minutes to whip up.


Hosting Hack: Velveeta cheese dip is undeniably delicious on its own, but, it is also a great base for fun flavor combinations. We like to mix + match different toppings with our queso + always love the end result. Here are some ideas to add to your cheesy base:

– Fresh Tomatoes

– Green Chilis

– Queso Fresco


– Cilantro

– Red Onions

All of these different toppings freshen up this classic dip and give it a flavorful, crave-worthy twist.

At this point, classic queso dip made with Velveeta is probably something you could make from memory, but we’re sharing the recipe here so you don’t miss out:

Serves: 24

1 lb. (16 oz.) Velveeta, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 can (10 oz.) Ro*Tel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained

Combine ingredients in microwavable bowl

Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until Velveeta is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 3 minutes
