    LiisaN's Note:

    This is my version of queso that is familiar with Pappasito's in Houston, TX. I found this copycat from CopyKat.com with my adjustments of more onion, garlic, and tomato.. and this is fairly close..but not quite there.. it's really good all the same!! Hope you think so too!

      This did not taste anything I had at Pappasitos. Dip was to thick not creamy and thin and tasted to much like American cheese melted.

      This was a delicious dip. I also thinned some and use it as a sauce for cheese enchiladas. It was pretty quick and easy to prepare. Will be using this for my Mexican themed dinner. Thanks LilsaN. Bullwinkle.
