What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than with warm, gooey, cheesy dip? From a smoky tequila-spiked queso to a corn-studded version, here are five essential recipes.

1. Bayless's Queso Fundido al Tequila

Food & Wine:

Chef Rick Bayless's simple dip of melted cheese flavored with tomatoes, chiles, onion and a hit of tequila is perfect for a Cinco de Mayo fiesta.

2. Queso Fundido with Shrimp & Tomatoes

3. Corn Queso Fundido

Food & Wine:

F&W's Justin Chapple uses frozen sweet corn to create this cheesy, slightly spicy dip.
