This spicy cheese dip is perfect for sharing. It’s great for dipping vegetables, pretzels, chips, or to use to top tacos and more! The spice in this recipe comes from the spicy sausage!

I love to make queso dips for parties because they go so great with all kinds of veggies, pretzels, chips, etc. I can set it out and everyone can dunk whatever they want in there!

When it comes to appetizers you can’t beat a good dip recipe. This one would also be really good with some crusty bread. I don’t think a bread bowl would hold it well because the cheese needs to stay warm but the thought of some good bread chunks dunked in there is making me drool!
