Smoked Queso


Dan-Good Smoked Queso

This Dan-Good smoked queso recipe comes just in time for our favorite time of the year here in Kentucky… Derby. Derby is a big deal in our home state of Kentucky. Across our state, we have big derby parties with betting, bourbon, and some of the best appetizers you’ll ever eat. 

The Perfect Recipe For Derby

This smoked queso recipe would be the perfect recipe for a derby party. It yields a ton of servings and it will be more than enough for the entire party. Plus it doesn’t require too much prep work.

Just the Right Amount of Heat

This recipe does have some heat to it, but it’s not too overpowering. We like to think that this is just the right amount of heat with jalapenos, pepper jack, and Dan-O’s Hot Chipotle.
