Torchy's Tacos Green Chile Queso

Rated as 4.29 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."

  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and jalapenos. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute more and remove from heat.
  2. Transfer jalapeno mixture to a blender. Add water, diced tomatoes, hot green chiles, mild green chiles, and cilantro. Cover and blend on high until mostly smooth.
  3. Pour blended mixture into a large pot over medium heat. Add processed cheese, chicken soup, cream cheese, hot sauce, cumin, and chili powder. Cook and stir until completely melted, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in lime juice; reduce heat to low.


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

I was very excited to see this post as I love Torchy's Queso. But how can you call this a copy cat recipe? Torchy's recipe is vegetarian. This one uses condensed cream of chicken. Wish I could...

I made half a recipe, and the only thing I left out was the can of hot chiles. My husband, Texas born and raised, loves it! I'm questioning the addition of the cream of chicken soup. I think ...
