But I have to admit, I’m hooked when it comes to nacho cheese. I’m a dipper by heart and can’t resist pulling out the tortilla chips for a one-on-on encounter with one of the best EVER! dips for any occasion.
You can make this stovetop and then transfer it to a mini crockpot to keep it warm. (HINT: Set your crockpot to LOW, otherwise the queso will burn).
But it does hold up if left to room temperature.

This nacho dip works well for all occasions including game day, family gatherings, Super Bowl parties, tailgating, picnics and more.
Finally, include your favorite dippers like tortilla chips, veggie wedges, pita chips, or toasted bread.
