    ms_bold's Note:

    Chile con Queso made with Shrimp!! This is a winner at our house! I sometimes use the smaller salad shrimp (purchased frozen at Sam's club) and don't chop. Add more jalapeno or hot sauce, to taste.

      Ms. Bold I am so sorry I didn't give this recipe a 5 star years ago (I obviously wasn't a very experienced cook). This Shrimp con Queso was FABULOUS. Thank you so much for posting such a wonderful recipe.

      I'm so glad I tried this recipe. It's absolutely wonderful. I used diced tomatoes flavored with mild green chili's at DH's request!! I didn't use the Mont.Jack cheese, but instead used a four cheese Mexican blend and sharp cheddar instead of the extra sharp. I used medium shrimp which I chopped, but not real fine. I served this with triscuts and it was perfect because when you dipped you caught some shrimp!!
