Easy Smoked Queso ft. Tacos Everyday
National Queso Day is September 20. In honor of the day and one of our favorite appetizers that can be a main course, we bring to you our ooey, gooey, cheesy and delicious Easy Smoked Queso featuring our Tacos Everyday rub!
Smoking this dish was easy on our Recteq 1250 pellet smoker, but you can also replicate the heat with a traditional charcoal grill with the indirect heat set up (hot coals on one side of the grill and the opposite side without coals which is where you'd place your loaf pan).
Enjoy this at tailgate parties, family meals, for lunch by yourself! ROFL!
