Top Review by Sackville

This worked out perfectly, and that's saying something because I've failed at making Chile con Queso many times before. Each time I tried to make different versions of this dish it would come out all gloopy but this one was perfect. Very smooth and tasty. I only needed to add about a tablespoon of milk. You do have to be quick eating it because the cheese starts to firm up when it cools, but that's not a problem since it's so yummy!
