Smoked Queso

A smoky version of our favorite Mexican party dip! This smoked queso dip is the perfect appetizer to share. You can make it mild or hot, and you can add hamburger, or whatever you’d like – the possibilities are endless!

What I love about this smoked queso is it actually heats up really well – just store it in a air tight container, and heat and serve.
