Campfire Queso
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Let's be real, everyone loves Velveeta. The only way to make it better is by adding sausage and beer.
  • ½ lb. hot Italian sausage
  • ½ c. beer (such as pale ale)
  • 16 oz. Velveeta, cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 c. shredded pepper jack
  • ½ (10-oz.) can Rotel tomatoes
  • Freshly chopped cilantro, for serving
  • Sliced jalapeño, for serving
  • Tortilla chips, for serving
  1. In a medium or large cast-iron skillet over a campfire, cook sausage, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until golden and no longer pink, 5 minutes. Pour over beer and deglaze skillet.
  2. Reduce 3 minutes, then add Velveeta, pepper jack, and Rotel and stir until melty and combined.
  3. Garnish with cilantro and jalapeño before serving with tortilla chips.
