J Dub’s Queso for a crowd is my take on the popular traditional rotel dip. A few additional ingredients take this queso to the next level. I’ve been making this dip this way for over 25 years. Not only is it easy – clean up is a breeze.


3 pounds Jimmy Dean sausage

3 packages cream cheese

32 ounces Velveeta, or my homemade Velveeta

3 cans of rotel tomatoes

1 teaspoon Cumin or to taste

1teaspoon Chili Powder or to taste


  1. Cook sausage until crumbly and no longer pink.
  2. While sausage is cooking, grease crockpot with non-stick spray.
  3. Add blocks of cream cheese, rotel, and velveeta.
  4. Top the cheeses with drained and cooked sausage.
  5. Put the lid on crockpot and heat on low until everything has melted.
  6. Stir frequently to prevent cheeses from sticking.
  7. Once cheese has melted, add your spices. If you are sure about the spice amount, you can add them at the beginning as well.
  8. When ready to serve, transfer the dip to a chafing dish or serve straight out of crock pot.


If you want one recipe of this dip, then its 1 pound of sausage, 1 package of cream cheese, 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, 12 ounces of velveeta cheese, 1/2 teaspoon Cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon chili powder.

For a little heat, use Hot Jimmy Dean sausage instead of the mild (or a combination of both). If you are looking for another cheesy dip, try out J Dub’s Black Eyed Pea Dip. Both of these are great to serve at any party, including New Year’s and Super Bowl Extravaganzas.
