Now to learn how to make High Protein Queso Dip Recipe:
Here are all the ingredients you’ll need laid out.
Of course I’ve gotta share with you some pictures to get you drooling over making this…
Doesn’t it just look so tasty and filling? One of my favorite things about this dip is that it is both super yummy, but it’s also packed with protein so I have so much less guilt when I eat it.
I love that there are several forms of protein in this recipe. The best part about that is that you can pick and choose which proteins you want to add.
- 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes and chilies
- ½ pound white american cheese, shredded
- ½ pound pepperjack cheese, shredded
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- ½ to 1 pound ground beef, browned and drained (use desired amount of meat)
- 1 pound sausage roll, browned and drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- ¼ cup chopped red onion
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1. In a medium stock pot or dutch oven, heat the diced tomatoes and chilies over medium-low.
2. Stir in the cheeses, sour cream, garlic powder, and onion powder. Continuing stirring, leaving only for very short periods of time, until completely melted and blended.
3. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and stir to combine.
4. Optional: If a thinner sauce is desired, add ½ cup milk.
5. Serve warm with assorted chips and vegetables for dipping.
Once warmed you can serve in a slow cooker on warm setting, a good option if it will be left out for an extended period of time.

Oh, and since this is a dip that needs to stay warm, just throw it in a small slow cooker if it needs to stay out to be snacked on…just place it on the “keep warm” setting.
