It’s officially football season and next week is the first game so I need to get my dip game in action. Crock Pot Queso Dip is one of my all-time favorites and thought I would pair it with this new Taco Bell Hot Sauce and add some beef to it. If you want an even easier recipe try my Crock Pot Chili Cheese Dip where you don’t even brown the meat.

I was getting my enchilada sauce for Enchilada Casserole and came across this Taco Bell Hot Sauce on the shelf next to it. I’m not sure if it is actually new or just new to me but either way I love the Taco Bell Hot Sauce. They had mild too if you prefer that sauce. I always keep the packets from Taco Bell and keep them in my fridge in case I ever need a little sauce for my tacos.
If you are anything like me you are more into the appetizers than the actual football game. This dish makes a ton of dip so make sure to invite a crowd. Or be ready for tons of leftovers (hello queso dip for lunch). I can promise you this will be a touchdown with your guests and win MVA (Most Valuable Appetizer). Plus it is really filling because of the ground beef and cheese. I usually have to taste the dip a few times as it’s cooking and sometimes by the time it’s done cooking I’m full. In my opinion, this could be a main dish!
Ingredients for Taco Bell Queso Dip
This Crock Pot Queso recipe is so easy to make. You can serve it right in the Crock Pot to keep it warm. I love bringing this to parties in my Cook and Carry Crock Pot. You only need 4 ingredients to make this cheesy delight.
- Taco Bell Hot Sauce
- Ground Beef
- Green Chilis
- If you don’t like Velveeta just swap it for 2 cups shredded cheese and 4 oz cream cheese.
- Substitute ground sausage for ground beef.
What to Serve with Taco Bell Queso Dip?
I always serve a few options with my queso dip because there are so many great dippers out there. I always have my favorite dipper, tortilla chips. Make sure and buy at least two bags of tortilla chips because I always feel like I run out after one bag.
Along with tortilla chips I like to add celery and carrots to the mix! Make sure to add an extra bowl of Taco Bell Sauce for people to add extra to their queso dip. I literally dip my queso into the taco sauce for each bite.
Nacho Bar Ideas
I love to make a nacho bar next to the Crock Pot! That way people can make their own nachos using the Taco Bell Queso. Here’s a list of things I put out.
- Taco Bell Sauce

- Chopped Onions
