Veal Queso Dip

This Veal Queso Dip is the awesome cheesy dip all your partygoers love with the extra added protein of ground veal! This warm dip is perfect for your next party or big game. This recipe calls for sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use the cheeses that are your favorite! Pepper Jack would be a great addition. Just a tip, use block cheese instead of pre-shredded cheese it melts down better for dips. Add more fresh veggies for more flavor too!
Paired with the chips or veggies of your choice, this dip is bound to be a crowd-pleaser! Test it out at your next party. A couple tips: If you have a small slow cooker use it to keep the dip warm. You can also make the dip ahead and warm it back up if you need to double up for a big game or busy event to save time.
