Classic deviled eggs made cheesy and creamy with delicious Queso Blanco! These gluten-free, high protein appetizers are FULL of zesty southwestern flavor and are incredibly easy to make. Perfect for your next holiday party or get-together!
To be honest, I am not a huge football fan. In fact, that’s putting it lightly. I really have NO interest in the sport. I am the person that only watched the Super Bowl for the commercials. 😉
With that said, I don’t turn down invitations to get together with friends and family for a few laughs and a chance to catch up…even if that means there’s a football game on in the background.
This past weekend I was invited to my friend’s house to watch a game…an indoor tailgate you could say. Of course I was excited to see her and her boyfriend (plus a slew of our other friends!) and even offered to make a dish for everyone to enjoy.
When I think of football tailgate parties (or even the upcoming holiday parties that we’ll all be attending), I think of bite-sized, hand-held snacks and appetizers that are easy to eat and DELICIOUS.
I’ve made all sorts of fun appetizers before. Like these or this for example. But one thing I haven’t tackled? Deviled eggs.
They’re a party staple! Everyone and their mother seems to LOVE them, yet I’ve been weary of them from a very young age. Just something about them never seemed appealing. Maybe because I am not a big mayo fan? Perhaps.
But you know me. Once I have something in my mind, I roll with it until I accomplish what I’ve set out to do. With a few fun ingredients at my disposal, namely the amazing Queso Dips from Rojo’s, I went to town creating a NEW KIND of deviled egg dish.
Have you heard of Rojo’s? They offer a complete line of fresh, restaurant-quality salsas and dips in several delicious flavors, including a new line of Queso Dips that I got to try. Deviled eggs call for a creamy filling, so I thought these dips would be the PERFECT replacement for icky mayo in the middle. I was right.
The Queso Blanco Dip that I chose to use is a mix of Monterey Jack & cotija cheeses, combined with zesty green chiles and jalapenos. So flavorful and rich!
You can tell upon first taste that Rojo’s makes their dips in small batches using premium, fresh-cut ingredients in order to deliver great, homemade flavor and freshness.
The Queso Blanco Dip is the STAR of this easy Southwestern Deviled Eggs recipe and truly packs these bite-sized snacks with tremendous flavor and creamy texture.
Southwestern Queso Blanco Deviled Eggs

- Total Time: 10 mins

As I mentioned above, I was NEVER a fan of deviled eggs. However, this recipe totally changed the game! The simple swap of Rojo’s Queso Blanco Dip for mayo took these eggs to the next level. I can’t tell you how amazingly tasty the dip and yolk combination was! Rich, creamy, zesty, and perfectly spiced!
You need to try these for yourselves, friends. They are the PERFECT easy app to take to your next tailgate or holiday party. Even the most staunch deviled eggs haters will come around after biting into one of these tasty snacks. Take it from me….a recovering deviled egg hater! 😉
