Easy Queso

After reading Everything Beautiful in Its Time by Jenna Bush Hager, we decided to do a little research on our favorite talk show host’s go-to snacks and treats, and one dish kept popping up… QUESO.

There are 10000 ways to make queso, but similar to us, Jenna sticks to what is tried and true: Velveeta Cheese.

Jenna’s recipe uses 1 can of refried beans, but we decided to add our own spin, and sub in corn (we like to think Jenna would appreciate this creativity 😉 ) We also decided to omit the ground beef, but recommend this addition if you are looking for a heartier dip!


  • 1 block Velveeta Cheese, cubed
  • 1 16 Oz. can yellow corn, drained
  • 1 10 Oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 4 Oz. can diced green chiles
  • 1/2 Onion diced
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 avocado


  • In a pot or saucepan over medium heat, add the Velveeta, corn, 1/2 of the can of tomatoes, 1/2 of the can of chiles, onion, and seasoning
  • Stir until cheese is completely melted and ingredients are well combined. Remove queso from heat and pour into serving dish; garnish with sliced avocado
