  • 1 (2 lb) block VELVEETA CHEESE
  • 1 lb SMOKED GOUDA CHEESE
  • 1 (10 oz) CAN ORIGINAL ROTEL
  • 1 (10 oz) CAN DICED ROTEL FIRE ROASTED TOMATOES AND GREEN CHILES
  • 1 (10 oz) CAN CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP
  • 1 lb HOT PORK SAUSAGE
  • 1 (2 lb) block VELVEETA CHEESE

Preparation

Heat a medium cast iron skillet over medium-heat and fully cook pork sausage breaking into small chunks as you go. Drain and discard fat reserving the sausage.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Use a 4 to 5 quart cast iron Dutch oven or other oven safe dish. Divide the block of Velveeta into 5-6 large pieces and cut the smoked gouda into small 1-inch cubes.

Add the canned ingredients including the liquid. Add the meat and the Traeger Coffee Rub last.

Smoke the queso for 45 minutes on the Traeger stirring three to four times. Add most of the cilantro the last 5 minutes of smoking.

Sprinkle remaining cilantro on the top before serving. Enjoy!
