  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 8 oz shredded Amish cheese (choose your favorite variety; we recommend a mix of sharp white cheddar and Gouda)
  • 1 can of evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
  • 1 can of Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilis
  • 1 pound of cooked ground beef, with excess grease drained


Prepare the Cheese Mixture

  • In a bowl, combine the shredded Amish cheese with the arrowroot powder (or cornstarch). Toss the cheese to ensure it's evenly coated with the powder.

Melt the Cheesy Goodness

  • In a medium saucepan, heat the evaporated milk over medium heat.
  • Gradually add the coated cheese mixture to the saucepan, stirring constantly to ensure it melts smoothly into the milk. Continue to stir until the mixture reaches your desired creamy consistency. This may take up to 10 minutes, so be patient as the cheese melds with the milk to create a luscious queso.

Add a Kick of Flavor

  • Once your queso is velvety and smooth, introduce the can of Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilis to the mix.
  • Incorporate the cooked ground beef, ensuring it's thoroughly heated through. This should take approximately 1-2 minutes.
