Cream cheese and chili queso dip


Cream cheese and chili queso dip -super easy and delicious queso dip made in the slow cooker! Yum!

A good friend gave this recipe to me years ago and it is still one of my favorite EASY dips to make. My whole family loves it! I’ve dressed it up a bit by adding in fresh lime juice, cilantro and taco seasoning and it adds the perfect flavor! It is so not healthy but oh so good! Perfect for a quick get together. If you run out of time you can throw everything in the microwave for a few minutes… but I like to keep mine in the slow cooker so it stay nice and warm.

Creamy queso dip



  • 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese , cut into cubes
  • (6oz) velveeta cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can no-bean chili
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick taco seasoning (more to taste)


Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and low for 2-3 hours. Stir and keep warm in the slow cooker until ready to serve.

You can add a Tablespoon or two of water if it needs to be thinned out. You can also make this without velveeta and it's just as yummy! For a quick dip -place the chili, cream cheese and velveeta in the microwave for a few minutes and then stir in the remaining ingredients.

    Does the dip have canned chili in it? The ingredients list doesn’t call for it but it’s in the description for making a fast dip in the microwave.

      Hi Ashley! I’m sorry the chili was left from the ingredient list. Thanks for catching that, it is updated now! :)

    Am I crazy?  I don’t see the “chili” part in the recipe – but no one else commented that it was missing,  so maybe in blind lol… I’m really interested in this recipe, but have no idea what to do for the Chili part lol… 
    thanks – i love your website,  btw :)

    This looks amazing! I almost always add cream cheese to any of my dips because it always adds a nice and creamy flavor. Can’t wait to try this!
