Chile Con Queso

Chile Con Queso

Chile Con Queso, which translates to “chile peppers with cheese” is a spicy cheesy appetizer that is served warm with French bread or Fritos.  It is made with a mixture of Velveeta and sharp cheddar cheese.  I don’t use Velveeta very often.  In fact this is the only recipe I have that calls for it, but my husband has fond memories of it from when he was a kid.  His mom used it to make grilled cheese sandwiches and macaroni and cheese.  It’s very smooth when it melts which is why it works great for this dip.

I’ve had this recipe for a long time.  I think one of my roommates in college gave it to me, but it wasn’t really very spicy when I got it.  I added  cayenne pepper, garlic powder, dried cilantro and some salt and pepper, and those additions made a big difference.  Serve this at your next party, and get ready for compliments!
