National Queso Day

National Queso Day in The Villages FL

Almost any cheese lover will tell you that the world got a little better the day that chili con queso dip got invented. Chili con queso, or “queso,” for short, is a delicious cheese dip that finds a home in a great deal of Tex-Mex cooking.

Queso originates from Chihuahua, a state located in the north of Mexico. There’s a good chance you won’t find a whole lot of the kind of queso dip that we know and love offered up at restaurants in Mexico, but restaurants all throughout the U.S. serve up this delectable vat of cheesy goodness.


  • Go out for queso
    Round up a group of friends and head down to your favorite Mexican restaurant. Queso is great any time of the day, but we suggest indulging in this tasty treat during Happy Hour. Queso tastes delicious by itself and it tends to taste even better paired with a nice, cold margarita!
  • Try making a new queso recipe
    If you always stick to making the recipe found on the back of a very famous box of processed cheese, why not branch out a little? By browsing through some cookbooks, or doing a quick search online, you are sure to come across some new and exciting queso recipes that are worth giving a shot.
  • Score some free queso
    There are more than a few restaurants throughout the United States that offer free queso on September 20. Do your homework ahead of time and you might just find that you can score some cheese dip goodness for free on National Queso Day.


  1. Why not combine two favorites: fajitas and queso?
    Two of the most beloved menu items at a Tex-Mex restaurant are fajitas and queso dip; combine the two by finding a recipe for chicken fajita queso dip. ​
  2. Lactose free?
    The internet is filled with some amazing vegan, cashew-based queso recipes that taste just as good as melted cheese. ​
  3. ​Get a little more authentic with queso fundido
    Queso fundido — a stringy, delicious pile of cheese melted on a hot griddle — is often served at restaurants and gatherings throughout Mexcio.
  4. Queso con wings
    Believe it or not, many people insist that one of the best bowls of queso dip is served up at Buffalo Wild Wings.


    • ​Queso is delicious
      Salsa and guacamole are great, but sometimes we just want a warm bowl of cheese to dip our tortilla chips in. Just daydreaming about all of that hot, melted cheese makes our mouths water!
    • ​Everyone makes queso a little differently
      It doesn’t matter if we’re all using the same recipe — it always seems as if each person makes queso differently. Maybe you add more spice, or perhaps your queso always turns out nice and thick while your friend’s cheese dip often turns into a runny mess. Personally, we’ve never met a queso we haven’t liked.
    • ​It’s easy to make
      Sitting in a Mexican restaurant and ordering a steaming bowl of queso is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but that shouldn’t stop you from making queso at home whenever the craving strikes. Although some queso recipes can get pretty extravagant, you can make a pretty kick-butt bowl of queso just by melting some cheese and throwing in a couple of spices.
