Texas queso can be found on top of nachos or served with chips for a cheesy snack. There are countless versions of this dip—ours is easy to make yet packed with flavor. When you start to melt the cheese it may look a little funny, but keep stirring and you’ll have a creamy, smooth dip in no time.
Game plan: You can grate the cheese using a food processor to speed up the prep. You can also prepare the cheese and onions up to 2 days ahead. Just keep everything covered and refrigerated until you are ready to make the dip.

Beverage pairing: Radeberger Pilsner, Germany. If this queso had called for Velveeta cheese, like the kind that you get at baseball concession stands, a basic American lager such as Bud would have been a fine choice. But since we’re using extra-sharp cheddar, an extra-sharp beer is called for. Radeberger is a German-style pilsner, as opposed to a Czech-style, meaning that its hops are a little more shrill and its body a little lighter and less malty, which makes it an apt match for the sharpness of the cheese.
