Torchy's Tacos Green Chile Queso

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Love Torchy's queso? You have to give this a try! Don't worry that mine doesn't have green chile chunks like Torchy's, they're in there. I like mine blended into a creamy piece of heaven. It's delicious served warm with guacamole and tortilla chips! Perfect party size."

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If the queso is too thick, thin with additional water.
  • Keep the queso warm in a slow cooker on low.
