  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage.  If there is a lot of grease, drain the grease.
  • Add the jalapeno and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the rotel and stir and heat. 
  • Turn the stove on low. Add the Velveeta, pepper jack and cream cheese and let them melt.  Stir often, and be careful not to let them scorch.
  • Add the Guinness beer and stir till combined.  If the cheese is too thick, add an additional ¼ cup.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and add some avocado. Serve with your favorite chips or veggies.


  • Heat Level. Be sure to keep the skillet on medium low to medium heat. Don't get in too big a hurry because you need the cheese to melt slowly and thoroughly.
  • Keep stirring. Stir continuously to keep the cheese from burning on the bottom, and to ensure that all the ingredients combine completely and the cheese melts evenly.
  • Do The Salsa. Add some additional pizzazz, flavor, and heat to your queso by adding your favorite salsa right in the queso. You can add as little as or much as you like, depending on how spicy you like your queso.
