  • 1 12 oz extra stout beer
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • buns

Sausage and Stout Queso

  • 1 lb Italian hot sausage casings removed, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 8 oz pkgs cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 12 oz extra stout beer


  • Throw all the ingredients for the Sausage and Stout Queso into the slow cooker. Set to High and let go an hour, stirring occasionally, until blended and creamy.
  • Meanwhile, put the Polska Kielbasa and a 12 oz stout in a saucepan to simmer. Simmer an hour while the queso cooks.
  • Heat the grill to high heat. Once ready, grill the sausages until well-marked with grill lines, and sizzling juicy hot.
  • Serve the Polska Kielbasa in rolls or hot dog buns, cut to size, topped with Sausage and Stout Queso and diced onion.


I have made this queso using pork sausage and chicken sausage. I prefer chicken sausage for this recipe, but they both work great.
The nutritional calculation is approximate and will vary with portion size (bun size), and it assumes all the queso is used which is unlikely.
