What sets this queso recipe apart from the rest? Ok, I’ll tell you. My secret ingredient is taco seasoning. While that may not seem like a huge secret, before this recipe, I never found a sausage queso dip recipe that had it. And really, this simple addition sets this apart from all the other queso recipes out there.

My kids love my mom’s queso dip, and honestly, I never thought I could beat her cheese dip in my kid’s eyes. That was until I made this Sausage Queso Dip.

And that means enjoying my favorite thing about this Sausage Queso Dip, the unexpected ingredient. The taco seasoning adds some flavor, and the sausage can add a hint of heat if you want it to.

While I bought just regular ground pork and have also used mild sausage, if you want some heat, use spicy sausage or chorizo. My husband and I prefer it this way, but not the kids.

Are you excited for game day and all the foodie things that come with it? Be sure to add this Sausage Queso Dip to your game-day or fiesta list. Everyone will love it. Simple, easy, and delicious, this queso recipe is excellent for any occasion.


  • Velveeta
  • Canned diced tomatoes
  • Ground pork or mild sausage
  • Taco seasoning
  • Milk
  • Shredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Tips

  • The queso will thicken as it sits. If it’s getting too thick, whisk in a couple of tablespoons of whole milk to thin it.
  • You can melt the cheese on the stovetop or microwave; either work!
  • Cook the pork and add the taco seasoning, stir in 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed, and let it come to a simmer.
  • You can substitute other ground meats like chicken, beef, or turkey for the ground sausage. If you don’t use sausage but ground pork or other meats, you may need to add extra seasoning.
  • If you have leftovers, you can store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container. To reheat, you can microwave it for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, or on the stovetop over medium heat, stirring frequently until heated through.

  1. overall pretty good, but way too salty. Can’t figure out where the salt came from, has to be the taco seasoning. Next time I will cut that in half at least.

    1. What taco seasoning did you use? I would love to know, I am sure that is part of it and the sausage, I find sausage to be salty sometimes as well.
