Chile con queso, often described in North America simply as queso, is an appetizer or side dish of melted cheese and chili peppers. It's typically served in Tex-Mex restaurants as a dipping sauce for Tortilla Chips.
As Texans, we eat a lot of Queso. We all have our favorite recipes. It's almost like a staple food for us at parties and family gatherings. This recipe is an adaptation of Chili con Queso that was shared with me by my niece, Heather. Thank Heather.
