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.

  2. Add the onion and jalapeno and cook, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, about 4 minutes.

  4. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until they give off their juices and they evaporate, about 5 minutes.

  6. In a medium bowl, toss the Monterey Jack and Cheddar with the cornstarch.
  7. Stir the cheese into the milk mixture, a handful at a time, stirring with the hot sauce.

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!!
