Who doesn’t love a cheesy, meaty party dip? Football season is gearing up and this Crockpot Taco Queso Dip is the perfect addition to your Sunday afternoons.
Nothing is more comforting on a fall or winter Sunday morning than pulling out the crockpot and setting about making an easy dip recipe. The aromas in the house just add to everyone’s anticipation of something good coming!
This taco queso dip combines two of my dip favorites, a block of Velveeta cheese and Rotel. Add in some spices and ground beef and this is a definite winner!
All you need to do is brown up some ground beef and drain the excess fat. Toss everything in the crockpot and cover it with a lid.
Come back every so often and give it a stir. After a few hours, you’ll have the most scrumptious dip you’ve ever tasted!
It is honestly the best cheesy queso dip recipe I’ve tried so far. It’s thick, creamy and with just the right amount of zing.
Every time I make this dip, people go crazy for it. I get asked time and time again for the recipe.
This taco queso dip recipe makes a very generous amount. There will be plenty for a gathering of friends and family and if you’re lucky, some leftover for your own special treat again the next day.

I just made this and it is literally THE BEST cheese dip stuff i’ve ever tasted!! I want to throw a party just so I can make this and impress people! Thanks for the recipe 😀
That’s awesome Gabbi! So glad you liked it!
I’ve been making this for years, I use a packet of taco
Seasoning instead of the other spices. Sometimes I throw in a brick of cream cheese, I’ve also used the spicy Velveeta for extra kick. Making it this weekend and I may add Italian sausage for something different.
Mmm, great suggestions Colleen! Thanks for sharing!
About how many people would this serve for a potluck?
Hi Erin. Probably at least a dozen people or more. For a party, I always do a double batch. It’s one that people devour so I always make extra and come home with very little.
I just wanted to confirm that this recipe doubled would be enough for about 24 people? Also, 3-4 hours on high instead of low?
Yes, it should be plenty. Cook it on high for a couple hours, stirring occasionally. You may not need that entire time depending on how hot your crockpot cooks. They all seem to be different. Hope you love it as much as we do!
Is this something i could cook the night before and then refrigerate and reheat in the crockpot for a party the next day?
i followed this recipe and followed the instruction and it was so thick! any suggestions?
You can always add some milk to it. Add a small amount at a time until it reaches the thickness you prefer. Hope that helps.
Hi, I want to make a small batch of this for a few people (5-6). How I can I alter this recipe ??
Hi Demi. I would just cut the recipe in half for that many people.
I just made this tonight and wanted to use sausage instead of beef and I accidentally got maple sausage so I added some hot sauce and it helped take down the maple sweet. So now it is a little sweet and hot.
Sounds yummy Melissa! Thanks for sharing!
Do you cook the ground beef bfor putting in the crockpot?.
Yes, you do need to cook it first.
Thank hoy ????
What size crock pot will this recipe fit in?
I’m not sure exactly what size my round crockpot is that I use for this recipe. I’m guessing it’s a 4.5 quart.
How many people does this serve?
Hi Hope. It’s really hard to guess on something like a dip. It really depends on how hungry your crowd is and how much each person eats. I’d say it’s plenty for at least a dozen people. I usually double it for our family gatherings of around 30 people. Hope that helps.
How long would you say this holds for after?
Hi Brianna. I’d say that this would keep in the fridge for 3 – 4 days.
So I have made your recipe a few times and it’s a HUGE hit! So thanks for the amazing recipe Just a silly question I wanna make this for a party so when I double it do I double everything from meat to seasonings like 4 cans of rotels, 2 blocks of cheese, 4 tsp of onion power n so on
Hi Stephanie. Yes, double everything.
If you do a double batch, what exactly are you doubling? Everything? As in the cheese, spices, hamburger meat, tomatoes, etc?.
Hi Dawn. Yes, double everything.
