Comfort food that doubles as the ultimate party dip? Yes, please. Before you start this recipe, we have a couple tips. #1 Precook your sausage, we recommend using a spicy or hot sausage for extra spice. #2 Cut the velveeta and gouda cheeses into about ½ cubes for easy melting. #3 We really like garlic, so we added 6 cloves! Feel free to add garlic as desired. #4 Try using a Vidalia onion for a hint of sweetness in your queso. #5 When adding your chopped jalapenos, remember that the more seeds you keep, the spicier your queso will be. #6 Add a can of Rotel and a Cream of Mushroom soup for some added color, flavor, and creaminess. #7 Season it up with some Meat Church Holy Voodoo for a bit of sweet heat, or try out Meat Church The Gospel to add some Southwestern BBQ flavor.
