“This is a true chile con queso that can be eaten with tostadas or in a warm corn tortilla. This is not like the Americanized version of chili con queso that we have become used to that is a cheese dip, which I also love. This is the way my grandma used to make it. The great thing about this recipe is you can play with it and adjust it to your personal taste. If you like it cheesier add more cheese. You can't mess this up unless you burn it.”

I used this as a helper when making chile con queso yesterday. I tend not to follow recipes exactly, so... I didn't add the onion. I saute├ęd the tomato as suggested. My cheese was Mexican.. but was called Queso for Quesadillas. I like things spicy, but since I made this for a work function, I used pepper jack and my Quesadilla cheese had chiles in it also. It was really good. Will definitely use this idea again. The only thing I wonder is how to make it not so shiny, glossy, gluey... That is not what I remember from restaurants. In any case, very good!

I didn't want to bother with the onions, tomatoes and peppers so I just added some picante sauce to the melted cheese. It turned out great!!
