Variations on Slow Cooker Queso Fundido
You can use just about any melting cheese you like in this recipe and any kind of salsa! The world is your oyster! I highly recommend trying out different kinds of sausage, too, like Italian, Nduja, or andouille. For a vegan version, I recommend using my vegan queso recipe as the base and Trader Joe’s Soy Chorizo!
Queso fundido is just hot cheese dip filled with chorizo. It’s also called Queso Flameado, meaning “Flaming Cheese”, in reference to the spicy chorizo sausage.
Queso fundido is cheesy, spicy, and savory!
Traditional queso is just melted cheese dip, whereas fundido includes spicy chorizo!
Here, we are using salsa to thin out the cheese. However, if you find your queso is still too thick after cooking, you can add a few tablespoons of whole milk to thin it.
Queso can curdle if the cheese gets overcooked or scorched. If this happens, try adding a splash of lemon juice or a small amount of flour (whisk vigorously!) to bring the dip back together.
How to Store and Reheat
Store leftovers in an airtight container, and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat queso fundido in a crockpot on the low setting, stirring until it’s fully warmed through. Stir in milk if it’s too thick. You can also reheat it in the microwave in 30-second intervals.
I don’t recommend freezing cheese dips because the texture will not hold up well when frozen, thawed, and reheated.
