SO easy and good!

Top Review by Alisa Lea

This recipe was good but it seemed to be lacking some "zing". I was using sliced jalapenos so maybe I didn't use enough this time. Maybe next time I'll use Pepper Jack cheese instead.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in large skillet. Add diced tomatoes, minced jalapenos, diced onion, and a large pinch of salt. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in tequila and cook, stirring frequently, until skillet looks nearly dry, about 2 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low. Add cheese and cook, stirring constantly, until fully melted, about 30 seconds.
  3. Quickly transfer queso to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve immediately with tortilla chips.
