Loaded Queso

Loaded Queso

In our house queso is a staple. It’s probably a staple in all Texan households! Depending on my mood the queso can be a simple one with only three ingredients or elaborate with lots of ingredients. I prefer queso with some protein and this recipe definitely provides that with the addition of meat and beans.

I use Bush’s Black Beans in this recipe because in one can, there are 7 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. You can find Bush’s Beans at Walmart. I always keep beans on hand to add to various recipes. It’s an easy way to make a recipe more filling.

If you are taking this to a party I recommend doubling this Tex-Mex appetizer recipe to ensure there is enough for everyone, because sometimes when people eat queso they turn into savages! Sometimes I double this just for my kids and let them eat it for dinner. (Yes, I realized that makes me sound like a lazy mom!)

Loaded Queso


1/2 lb. hot pork sausage or chorizo

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup of chicken broth

16 oz. Velveeta, cut into 1” cubes

1/2 c. Shredded Pepper Jack cheese

1 (14.5-oz) can Rotel Tomatoes, undrained

1 small can Bush’s black beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1-2 diced jalapeños seeds removed


Brown sausage in a medium skillet over medium heat. Crumble your sausage as you cook it.

When the sausage is cooked, add in chicken broth and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Now add cheese and stir to combine.
It should take about 4-5 minutes for all the cheese to melt in.

Once melted, stir in the tomatoes, beans, jalapeños and cilantro.

What do you like to put in your queso?
