Pressure Cooker Ranch Queso

Just ask anyone from Texas — queso makes the world go round. This Pressure Cooker Hidden Valley® Ranch Queso recipe is no exception, with kicked-up flavors made extra easy. A smooth, richly satisfying combination of diced onions, ground beef, diced tomatoes, green chiles, and zesty HVR Seasoning creates a slam dunk appetizer that steals the show of any spread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & easy Super easy to make. One of the first recipes I made when I received my pressure cooker. My husband loves this so we have it as a little treat every now and then. I like adding more like Velveeta and the Velveeta queso cuz it gives it a nice blend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy I don't have a pressure cooker so I just sauteed in a pan on the stove, added the ranch after the cooking was done and then put everything into a slow cooker; it obviously took longer but it was still a big hit when done. :)
