Gringo Chile Con Queso

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Dawn399

This is an easy cheese dip that is delicious. It is response to the query- What do I do with Velveeta! Everyone who has tried this enjoys it, and despite the easy preparation, it can hold it's own next to any restaurant style chile con queso.

My aunt and sister make this all the time. It's easy, but easy isn't what it's always about. I would avoid a restaurant that served this.
