Green Chile Cheeseburger Queso

Green Chile Cheeseburger Dip

Green Chile Cheeseburger Queso is the perfect marriage of the ever popular green chile cheeseburger and classic Ro-tel Velveeta queso. Easy to make and always a crowd-pleaser.

Hey, everybody loves that Rotel Velveeta queso, right? Here we pump it up into a full meal (well, almost) reminiscent of those classic green chile cheeseburgers. Hamburger, onions, garlic, green chile – can’t miss. Very satisfying and easy to make.

I got a little carried away with this. I tried this with ground beef and with mild Italian sausage. Really good. It’s good either way, so if you particularly like sausage, it’s great in this. This is really a perfect appetizer for that Super Bowl party. If you’re putting it on a buffet table, it’s best to have it in a crock pot so it stays warm and melty. A warning: I’ve used a lot of different slow cookers, and I find that the ones that have no “low – high” settings have only a “high” – and that means that dishes like this queso will tend to scorch around the sides if they sit for very long. The solution? Stir it regularly and unplug it every so often.

This one is guaranteed to get snarfed up right away. Hope you enjoy it!

Green Chile Cheeseburger Queso
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6 cups
  • 32 oz Velveeta, cubed
  • 1 10 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes & green chiles
  • 1 cup mild diced green chiles
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • ½ lb ground beef *
  • Black pepper
  1. In a small skillet, cook the onions and beef over medium heat, breaking up the beef into small chunks as it cooks. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the mixture as it cooks. When the beef is nearly browned, add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Drain the excess fat off and set the cooked beef aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, dump the Ro-Tel, green chiles, and Velveeta. Over low heat, stir as the cheese melts to blend thoroughly.
  4. Add the ground beef mixture in and stir to blend in.
  5. Pour into a serving bowl and serve immediately with chips. If serving on a buffet, it helps to have the queso in a slow cooker set on low.
