Southside Beef
Sausage Queso


  • 4 links Southside Original Beef Sausage (fully smoked)
  • 1 lb quality American cheese
  • ¼ lb mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup half & half creamer
  • 2 Tbsp. pickled jalapeños (drained and chopped)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • chopped cilantro, tomatoes, and fresh jalapeño (for garnish)
  • 1Tbsp. guacamole (optional) 

Queso is a party staple here in Texas and we’ve bumped up the flavor with our smoked Original Beef Sausage! Serve this dip-style with your favorite chips or smother over enchiladas, beef steak, grilled chicken and more. So simple to prepare, you may never eat anything without cheese again!


  1. Slice sausage into ¼” thick rounds, and then cut each round in half for simple bite-sized pieces. Place in a skillet over medium heat and sauté until warmed through and browned. Set aside in a bowl lined with paper towels to drain off extra juices
  2. In a non-stick pot, melt American and mozzarella cheeses together over medium low heat, stirring frequently
  3. Once cheese has melted, add creamer, jalapeños, and pepper flakes. Stir until combined
  4. Remove pot from burner and top with optional cilantro, tomatoes and fresh peppers if desired. Serve warm with chips, flat bread, or over main course

*Host Tip: Make a second batch using Southside’s slow-smoked USDA Prime Brisket. Moist is recommended, but lean is great as well!
