  • 1 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 1 jalapeno finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp lime juice fresh
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped


  • Add American cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, bell pepper, diced tomatoes with green chilies, jalapeno, garlic, and onion powder to the slow cooker.
  • Stir ingredients until combined.
  • Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Stir halfway through if possible.
  • Stir once finished. Add cilantro and lime juice if desired and mix until combined.

If the queso becomes thick add 2 tablespoons milk or half and half until the consistency is creamy. 
Swap the jalapeno for green chiles if you want a milder spice level.
