This Is THE Best Game Day Queso

If you’re looking for the best queso to buy, then you could read through our ranking of the best queso to buy. We tasted a bunch and ranked the top seven, so there are plenty to pick from if you’re looking for something specific like queso blanco or a queso that doubles as a cheese sauce. But if you don’t feel like reading, if you’re interested in getting one simple answer to the question, “what’s the best party queso?” Then, I can help. Because, for me, there’s one game day queso that rises above the rest, not only because it tastes good but also because it’s so versatile: On the Border Salsa Con Queso.

Are you ready to geek out about a single jar of queso? Let’s get gooey.

Here’s a question for you: When you put store bought queso out at a party, is it hot? Is it cold? Is it room temp? It probably should start hot, right? You want your party guests to have that restaurant experience. But then what happens when it cools down? It gets that pudding skin on the top. It’s difficult to dip into. And people pass it over, opting for something room temp-friendly like salsa or spinach dip. But wait, not all store bought queso does that. On the Border Salsa Con Queso is just as good warm as it is at room temp or even cold. It’s incredibly creamy and smooth, and it doesn’t just taste like melted cheese. It has some good fruitiness from the jalapeno pepper in the mix—but it’s also not too spicy. And it’s really good on anything. Put out tortilla chips, obviously, (we’ve got some recommendations for the best tortilla chips, if you’re looking), but also try pairing it with some taquitos or even crunchy raw vegetables like carrot sticks, celery, and cauliflower. It’s a game day queso dip that can do it all.
