Smoked Queso

Smoked Queso

A solid 10 from every one of us!


  • 1 pound hamburger meat
  • 1 package taco seasoning or chili mix seasoning
  • 1 pound Velveeta cut into cubes
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can spicy Rotel
  • 1 can beer


We smoked this in our pellet grill.  I turned the heat on to 250 degrees.

Cook hamburger meat.  Drain fat and season with either a package of taco seasoning or chili mix and 3/4 cup water.  (I have done both and liked them equally). 

In a large foil pan throw in your cooked meat, Velveeta, mozzarella, and Rotel.  Stir gently to somewhat combine.  Pour the beer over all. Smoke for 45 minutes.  Stir and let cook another 15 minutes. 

I am sure you can also cook this in the oven!
