Christmas Queso / Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman

Chile con Queso (Spanish for "chile with cheese"), often described in North America simply as Queso, is an appetizer or side dish of melted cheese and chili peppers, typically served in Tex-Mex restaurants as a dipping sauce for nachos.

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.

Christmas Queso:

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
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!
