Chile con queso is a dish that originated in the United States and is made from melted cheese and chili peppers. It is often served as a dip for tortilla chips, but it can also be used as a topping for nachos, burritos, and other Mexican-style dishes. There is some debate about the exact origins of the dish, but it is generally believed to have been created by Mexican immigrants in the southwestern United States in the early 20th century. The dish has since become popular in many parts of the United States and is often served at Mexican restaurants and as a party snack.

Ingredients

Taco Dust Meat Parts

Queso Dip Parts

  • 32 oz Velveeta
  • 2.5 cup water (or milk)
  • 1 cup pico de gallo (optional)

Instructions

Taco Dust Meat Build

  • Cook beef on medium heat 325° to 374° (drain fat if needed)
  • Add 1/4 cup Taco Dust
  • Add 1 cup water
  • Simmer 5 minutes or until water dissipates.
  • Done and ready for tacos or queso.

Queso Dip Build

  • Get a pot or slow cooker on low. 225° to 249°
  • Add 2.5 cup water.
  • Cube the Velveeta into 1/2” size.
  • Let cubes melt stirring as needed.
  • Stir in Taco Dust Meat and pico de gallo if using.
  • You can make thinner by adding 1/4 cup water until your preference is obtained.
  • Too thin? Simmer a little longer.
  • Using milk as a thinner is great but honestly I can’t tell the difference between water and milk. Velveeta is derived from milk anyways. Enjoy!

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
