Written by Stgcom

Chili con Queso is a simple Mexican side dish or appetiser using simple ingredients that provide so much flavour. I often add cooked chili or spicy beef mince for additional flavour turning the dish into a main course. I serve this with a large plate of tortilla chips for easy dunking and sharing. As a side dish, it goes so well with Quick NachosChicken Fajitas and Tequila Shrimp for a balanced meal. As an appetiser, I serve this with GuacamoleRefried Beans – Frijoles Refritos and Mexican Hash – Picadillo. This is a simple recipe that you will make again and again as you can put it in the slow cooker, set it cooking and leave it until ready.
