NOTE: When I made this I started in a Large Crock Pot. I added the Rotel, Pimientos and Jalapeños. Turned it on High until it started to get Hot. Then I added some cubes of the Cheese until they started to melt. I heated the rest of the Cubed Cheese with a scoop of the Hot Rotel, in an 8 cup Pyrex measuring cup, in the Microwave until the Cheese melted. Stir it and then spoon it back into the Crock Pot. I ended up transfering it to a smaller Crock Pot.
I saw this recipe on a recent episode of The Pioneer Woman.
I simply re posted the original recipe.
We love Queso in Texas and everyone has their own family favorite recipes.
I liked the looks of this one for the holidays.
|The Smaller Crock Pot|
2 pounds queso blanco-style processed cheese, such as Velveeta Queso Blanco, cut in 1/2-inch cubes
2 cans Rotel (tomatoes with diced green chiles)
1 jar diced pimientos
2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped finely
Tortilla chips, for serving
Directions: See Note above.
Add the cheese to a saucepan and melt over medium heat. Add the diced tomatoes and chiles, pimientos and jalapenos and mix. Pour into a chafing dish to keep warm.
Serve with tortilla chips.
Paz en la cocina!
