I fell in love with Carlos O'Kelly's chili con queso with chicken, and experimented until I came up with something I think is a great imitation. It's often a requested appetizer dip at family functions. Serve hot with tortilla chips.

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the tomato, onion, and garlic until the tomato has released its juice and the juice has become thick and syrupy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix in the processed cheese cubes, and stir until melted and smooth. Stir in the sour cream, shredded chicken, green chiles, salsa, seasoned salt, and oregano until thoroughly mixed, and cook until hot but not simmering, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve hot.

This was very good. I did change it a little though. Used 1/2 cup of chopped onion. Sorry, a tablespoon just isn't worth it and you won't get any flavor out of it. I also used an entire small can of chopped chilies. I took this to book club and it was the first dish completely gone! Served it with the scoop Fritos. YUM!

OMG - this was so good. My family just sat around the table dipping Tostito chips in. Yum! I did not shred the chicken, just cut it into really small chunks and cooked it first in the frying pan, then added the rest of the ingredients as per the recipe.

Good queso, but it may as well have been the basic Rotel variety. Processed cheese is processed cheese, no matter how you dip it.
