Easy Homemade Queso Dip Recipe

This yummy dip actually came up by accident. We had some cheese sauce left over from dinner the previous night and we just mixed in some salsa that we had on hand, heated it up and it was the best queso we’d ever had! And so easy!

We love to dip our favorite tortilla chips in this queso dip or have it with nachos or just about any kind of Mexican food.
