On gameday, queso is an undisputed MVP but it often loses steam (and silkiness) by halftime. To combat the cooldown issue, this recipe calls for making the queso in a slow cooker, which you can keep plugged in to maintain cheesy, melty bliss through the final drive.

Instructions Checklist
  • In the bowl of a 1 1/2-quart slow cooker, toss both cheeses with cornstarch to evenly coat. Stir in tomatoes and evaporated milk; season with salt.

  • Cover and cook on low until mixture is bubbling and thickened slightly, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Uncover and stir until smooth. Season with more salt and garnish with onion, jalapeños, and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips on the side.
