    Chi-Chi's Chili Con Queso was to die for and is surely missed now that they are all closed. Not to fret though since I have a copy of the food manual. Enjoy!

      I was a cook for Chi-Chi and made many many 1/2 pans of this in my day...

      The original recipe contains Half and Half as was stated above but it also included Cumin. For your batch, I would say approx. 1 Tbsp. This was was one of the only recipes that did not require a seasoning packet so it was easy to reproduce.

      I was craving queso, specifically chi chi's queso, my all time favorite that I haven't had in years...went online and found this one! Loved it! I did add cumin (about 1/2 Tbs) and a splash (appr 1-2 Tbs)of fat free half and half. FYI... for individuals who can't find diced red peppers in a can, in my area of the US (Midwest) they are labeled as diced red pimentos. Enjoy!
