Copycat Chili's Queso Dip (Slow Cooker)

Serves 10     adjust servings

I can't tell you exactly how much of this queso dip I can eat in one sitting, because I would never be able to look you in the eye again! This is a copycat of the queso dip recipe served at Chili's, made in the slow cooker or on stove top. It's absolutely addictive and perfect for game day! 


  • 32 ounces Velveeta cheese
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans no bean chili*
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • juice from 3 limes (about 6 tablespoons)
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • tortilla chips
  • chopped onions (to garnish, optional)
  • chopped cilantro (to garnish, optional)
  • lime wedges (to garnish, optional)


Slow Cooker Instructions:

  1. Chop the Velveeta into chunks. Add it to a slow cooker. Add all the other ingredients (except garnishes..and tortilla chips. Did I have to say that? :)
  2. Place the lid on top and set to high heat for 1 hour. Stir once halfway through. Or you can cook it on low for 2-3 hours, stirring once halfway through. The longer it sits, the more time the flavors have to marry, so feel free to make this ahead of time! It reheats in a jiffy (microwave, stove top, or in the slow cooker).
  3. Serve with tortilla chips and garnishes!

Stove Top Instructions:

  1. Chop the Velveeta and add to a large pot. Add all the other ingredients and turn the heat to low. Stir frequently until it's all melted. Serve with chips and garnishes!
