slow cooker bean and cheese queso recipeI have been making a variation of this bean and cheese queso for years and years. Seriously, I think that the original recipe came from a crinkled up Gourmet magazine from the early 90s. I have made it so many times that I do not need to look at the recipe, I know it by heart. When Progresso asked me to try out their new Three Cheese Recipe Starters, I had a suspicion that it would be perfect for my bean and cheese queso recipe. I was right.

As with my Beer Cheese soup, this can also be made on the stove, but I like to make it in the slow cooker so that it frees up stove space, and stays warm for as long as you need it too. If you like your dip to be thicker, add an extra can of refried beans. You can also add jalapenos or hot sauce to heat it up a little if you like.

Leftovers (if you should be so lucky to have some) is so good ladled over tacos the next day.

  2. Loved the idea of the quesos until I read the ingredients of the sauces. You said you have been doing them for years; what did you use before the canned sauces? Our household has to be4 wheat free, and we avoid partially hydrolized fats like the plague (heart problems). I’d love to adapt this recipe so we can enjoy it.
