There is a new viral food trend making the rounds on social media. Once again it seems to have began on the popular app TikTok. Under the hashtag #smokedqueso, TikTok users are sharing videos of their own version of the appetizer.
To start, you need an aluminum foil pan. The size depends on how much queso you want to make. The ingredients seem to range depending on taste; it can be as simple as 4 ingredients or as complicated as you want. People are using chorizo, ground beef, all of the cheese–Pepper jack, cheddar, Velveeta, Monterey jack, you name it–jalapeños, onions, diced tomatoes with serrano pepper, and garlic. Some people are even adding taco seasoning, milk if the mixture dries out a bit, and cream cheese.
The trend has also made it’s way onto Twitter:
All you have to is place it all in the pan, put the pan on a grill; preferably a smoker if you have one. Once it gets all melty, it’s done, and you can dig in with as many tortilla chips as you can handle.
