This is a real hit with the big scoop corn chips. I am always amazed by how many people ask for the recipe. I always add a small can of diced greeen chili and a bit of sour cream to the mix. This is NOT a low cal dish....but worth it! Read More

A delicious dip to serve as an appetizer. This dip is similar to the Queso dip served at Chili's. It is quite filling so I serve with tortilla chips and only one or two other appetizers. Read More

This was sooooooooo good. We made the mistake of also fixing chili with it too. This recipe makes a HUGE amount for just two people. I was warming this stuff up for days! I couldn't eat too much at one time... it's pretty cheesy! Read More

Very easy to make. Needed to add little more chili powder for our taste. No brainer. Big hit at our Superbowl party. Read More

I managed to find some American Products in a specialty supermarket. They had both Chili with No Beans and Rotel Tomatoes with Jalapenos (as suggested by a reviewer). I decided to use the tomatoes as a dip containing meat seems wrong to me. I mixed the tomatoes with Kraft Chedder Cheese Spread and Sour Cream (to reduce the richness of the cheese) and heated in the oven. The result was outstanding and a bit of extra chili powder made all the difference. Served with warm corn chips. Note: anyone from Sydney who uses this site visit 5 Star Supermarket in Crows Nest for American Products. Read More

My go-to queso dip for over 20 years always a hit. I like it smooth so I process the chili in my food processor. I've added salsa to the chili blended with a stick blender before adding the chili/salsa to the cheese. A pinch of chili powder isn't enough. If you like it hot you'll need at least 2 teaspoons maybe more. This recipe is so easy to tweak to personal tastes there's no reason not to try it. It's pretty much impossible to screw it up. We even make it a meal sometimes! Read More
