Steak Queso Dip

Creamy, spicy, cheesy Steak Queso Dip is a hearty appetizer that everyone loves! Get the recipe at
Steak Queso Dip is creamy, spicy, smooth, cheesy and fully loaded with tender bites of steak. This queso is better than anything they're serving at your favorite Mexican restaurant. We devoured this cheesy dip with tortilla chips the first time we made it and I couldn't resist making it again a few nights later and pouring it over nachos.

There is just enough heat in this Steak Queso Dip to keep you coming back for one more bite. If you like it extra hot, I recommend doubling up on the jalapeños.

This is a very hearty queso that can easily be a meal along with some chips on the side. Next time you're grilling, set aside an extra steak so that you can make this Steak Queso Dip. You will not regret it.

COOK'S NOTE: The recipe is made with simple white American cheese (not to be confused with another cheese product that is shelf stable). You should be able to find plain white American cheese in the deli at any grocery store.

I recommend grilling the steak to medium rare or medium. The more tender the steak, the better it will work in the queso.

Steak Queso Dip

recipe adapted from this one
Yield: 2 cups

1/2 pound sliced white American cheese, roughly torn or chopped into 1" pieces
2 tablespoons chopped green chiles, frozen or canned will work fine
1 tablespoon pickled jalapeño slices, diced fine
1 tablespoon juice from the pickled jalapeños
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon cumin
8-12 ounces grilled steak, warm or room temperature

Combine the cheese, green chiles, jalapeños, jalapeño juice, milk, water, and cumin in a medium size glass bowl. Microwave for five minutes, pausing to stir after every minute. The dip will be very watery at first, but it will thicken as it finishes cooking.

While the dip is cooking, slice the steak as thinly as possible and then cut into bite-size pieces. Add the steak to the queso when it finishes cooking. Stir to combine and let rest 3-5 minutes before serving. Serve hot with chips for dipping. Enjoy!
