Chile con Queso

chile con queso

Though we don’t always root for the same team, everyone can get behind the once-a-year excesses of the Super Bowl spread. This ooey gooey cheesy appetizer is totally addicting and perfect for the big game. Lactose intolerant folks be afraid, be very afraid!

Anyone who knows me, knows my famous chile con queso. This recipe is my go-to potluck contribution, its easy and a crowd pleaser. This recipe falls into the Tex-Mex category. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Tex-Mex, but it is definitely not authentic Mexican. So to all our Mexican foodies out there, try it you’ll like it…it’s naughty.
