Southside Beef Sausage Queso

Southside Beef Sausage Queso

Queso is a party staple here in Texas and we’ve bumped up the flavor with our smoked Original Beef Sausage! Serve this dip-style with your favorite chips or smother over enchiladas, beef steak, grilled chicken and more. So simple to prepare, you may never eat anything without cheese again!

  • 4 links Southside Original Beef Sausage (fully smoked)
  • 1 lb. quality American cheese
  • ¼ lb. mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup half & half creamer
  • 2 Tbsp. pickled jalapeños (drained and chopped)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • chopped cilantro, tomatoes, and fresh jalapeño (for garnish)
  • 1 Tbsp. guacamole (optional) 
  • Slice sausage into ¼” thick rounds, and then cut each round in half for simple bite-sized pieces. Place in a skillet over medium heat and sauté until warmed through and browned. Set aside in a bowl lined with paper towels to drain off extra juices.
  • In a non-stick pot, melt American and mozzarella cheeses together over medium low heat, stirring frequently.
  • Once cheese has melted, add creamer, jalapeños, and pepper flakes, stirring until combined.
  • Remove pot from heat and top with optional cilantro, tomatoes and fresh peppers is desired. Serve warm with chips, flat bread or over main course.

*Host Tip: Make a second batch using Southside’s slow-smoked USDA Brisket. Moist is recommended, but lean is great as well!
