Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Servings: 3 cups


  • 1 lb pepper jack cheese
  • 8 oz full-fat cream cheese
  • ½ Cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1 10oz can original Rotel tomatoes & green chilies, drained
  • ¾ Cup whole milk (if needed)


  • 1 Tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tsp onion powder
  • 1 Tsp chili powder


  1. In a medium pot over LOW heat, combine the cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, and Rotel.
  2. Let the mixture heat until the cheeses melt and a smooth cream forms, stirring often. This should take 15-20 minutes. Add the spices if desired. Add milk if needed.
  3. Once melted, serve immediately, or transfer to a slow cooker with a “warm” setting to keep dip warm and melted. Enjoy![/ingredients]


  1. For best results, stick to full-fat dairy. Using low fat may result in lumpy consistency.
  2. For a smoother queso, try using half white American cheese and half Pepper Jack.
  3. Keep the crockpot on warm setting to maintain its soft consistency. If your only option is “low,” cycle it on and off, stirring it often to maintain consistency without burning.
  4. Starting the queso on the stove and then transferring to the slow-cooker works a little better and it’s a little quicker.
