Breakfast Queso--Not Just for Breakfast!

Prep 0 mins
Cook 5 mins

Someone brought this to our neighborhood Bunko group one night, and we all loved it! I've made it several times since, but I use it as part of my brunch menu when we have overnight guests. I serve it with warm flour tortillas and tortilla chips. If you like spicy get the hotter type of Rotel. YUM!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the sausage chopping it into tiny pieces as it cooks. While the sausage is cooking, cut the cheese bricks into cubes.
  2. Once the sausage is browned and crumbly, toss in the cheese, and pour in the rotel.
  3. Cook and stir until cheese is melted and mixture is bubbly. Serve warm with flour tortillas and/or tostada chips!
  4. *Reduce the fat/calories by using less sausage and reduced or fat free cream cheese.

I make this frequently on weekends, adding scrambled eggs to the warmed tortillas and I always use Mexican chorizo sausage for extra zip. Nice post!

I have been making this for ages and it is something I serve on a regular basis. I have never thought to eat it in a flour tortilla. I will try that sometime. I always serve it as a dip. I take it to get togethers all the time and everyone always asks for the recipe. My kids beg me to make this at least once a month! It's one of our favorites!
