Serve your party guests what they really want – venison queso dip! This slow cooker recipe for venison queso dip is the ultimate appetizer for game day or any get-together. It's made with taco-seasoned ground venison and, wait for it ... REAL cheese!

For the creamiest dip, bring cheese to room temperature before adding to slow cooker. A sudden temperature change in the cheese can result in clumpy, greasy dip.

Make this venison queso dip as spicy as you'd like. Keep the seeds and pith in the chili peppers to turn up the heat.


Serves: 10-12
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 to 1 ½ hours

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground venison (or ground venison chorizo)
  • 5 tablespoons Hi Mountain Taco Seasoning
  • ⅔ cup water
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2-3 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 large jalapeños, seeded and chopped
  • 1 serrano chili pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 pound extra sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans evaporated milk
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (or 6 tablespoons flour)
  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce), to taste

  6. Secure lid on slow cooker and set temperature to low. Cook for 1 to 1 ½ hours, stirring every so often, until cheeses have melted.
  7. Stir in hot sauce to taste. I like my queso dip on the spicy side, so I add about ¼ cup Siracha.
  8. Serve venison queso dip warm, with a side of tortilla chips for dipping.
