Ingredients

  • 1 lb spicy ground sausage browned & strained of grease

  • 1/2 large white onion diced
  • 32 oz block Velveeta cheese cubed
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes with green chilies drained
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients to a (disposable) 9x13" aluminum pan.
  • Smoke at 250 degrees for 2 hours. Stir the queso 1/2 way through cooking.
  • Use pot holders to carefully remove the pan from the smoker.
  • Stir the dip a final time until everything's smooth and evenly combined.

Notes

Queso, especially this velveeta cheese based dip, begin to harden & congeal rather quickly. To keep it smooth & creamy for longer serving, transfer it to a slow cooker and leave it covered on the warm setting.
