This Crock Pot Queso Fundido has made my marriage even better. My life as a food blogger is a constant journey to find recipes that will get Pat excited. For someone who claims to not be a picky eater…he is VERY particular about what he actually loves. Sure, he will eat anything (except onions), but he only craves a handful of foods. Spicy cheese dip is one of those foods that he LOVES (and I guess we’re a match made in heaven, because I too love cheese dip).
What he really loves it the chorizo cheese dip found at our local Mexican restaurant. Ooey gooey amazing queso! Well I just won Wife of the Year, because I figured out how to make this appetizer it at home…IN A SLOW COOKER! What could be better than slow cooker queso?
This delicious Queso Fundido with Chorizo only has FOUR ingredients, has just the right amount of spice, and is made easy and fool proof in a slow cooker. WINNING!

You can throw all the queso ingredients in a slow cooker, forget about it, and then enjoy! It has just the right amount of spice and way too much cheese (just kidding, there’s no such thing), which is just how I like it!
This is that thicker type of cheese dip you might expect at a restaurant. Two big thumbs up from me and my picky eater significant other.
Chorizo Cheese Dip
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.
It’s thick, cheesy, and spicy, filled with flavor that is addicting! It’s one of my favorite dips, and it’s always a hit at parties.

How to Make Queso Fundido
Okay, let me show you how easy this slow cooker queso recipe is. You barely have to do any work at all!
- Start by browning the chorizo in a skillet, and crumble it up as it cooks. Then drain it and set it aside.
- Combine the cheese, chorizo, salsa, and cilantro in a slow cooker.
- Cook on high for 1-2 hours, or cook on low for 3-4 hours. Stir every 30 minutes.
The next step is optional, but definitely adds a nice touch.
To get that flambe-like cheese, pour the queso from the slow cooker into an oven-safe bowl, then broil for 4-5 minutes.
Serve it up with chips, toasted bread, or anything else you like for dipping!
See how easy that was? You’ll be making this for every party from now on.
I hope you enjoy this Slow Cooker Queso Fundido recipe as much as we do. I have a feeling if you like spicy cheese, you’ll love this Crock Pot Queso! Buckle up…it’s a good one.

I wanted a creamier version so I adjusted my cheese sauce with half and half and three different cheeses (mild and sharp cheddar and colby jack) and added my secret weapon: one tablespoon of sodium citrate so my cheese sauce will never separate and then gently added chorizo and salsa with a little fresh corn. It stays creamy on low or warm with a gentle stir. Once you use the sodium citrate, you can keep batches of cheese in plastic containers in the fridge and use over pasta or even brocolli as a cheese sauce. Found out this tip when I researched how Kraft figured out how to sell mac and cheese boxed dinners using canned cheese that wouldn’t separate.
Thanks for sharing, Adria!
Can you make this a day prior and reheat the next day in broiler ?
That should work!
I’m going to make this dip tomorrow.. yum!
I could only find sliced pepper jack.. can I just throw that in the pot?
I haven’t tried that but I think it will be just fine. Hope you love it!
Oh my goodness – this looks amazing!
My favorite place to get Fundido closed, so I will definitely be trying this (and are you SURE it’s this easy? I was certain Fundido was much more complicated than this!).
Wow only 4 ingredients and so simple to make. The perfect appetizer for any gathering!
I love this! I love that it will not only taste good but my house can smell delicious too!
I’ve been eating tons of bacon this month. I really can’t look at this anymore because I want it so bad but I feel like a walking clogged artery. Your cheeseporn is so tempting!!!
Slow cook queso and I’m in it for the long haul. Give me a bag of chips and I’m done for.
Congratulations on your Wife of the Year award. Looks like it was well deserved!
I want to sit on the couch and eat a whole bowl of this!
