Texas Best Cheese Dip (Chile Con Queso)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is a delicious cheese dip that my daughter makes. The cream cheese gives it a wonderful consistency. All the fresh ingredients make this a dip that you will be asked for over and over again! Please note I have put "to taste" on alot of the ingredients as it depends on how big your bunch of veggies are. If you actually get lucky enough to have any left it keeps in the fridge a good while and reheats great. I usually serve/take this dip in a crockpot so it stays warm.

Ingredients Nutrition

I%u2019ve got mountains of dip recipes from all over the internet (mostly from here) but this one is by far the absolute best I%u2019ve ever tried. I made it in the microwave, melting the cheeses together first and then stirring in the other fresh ingredients. 5 stars isn%u2019t enough, really it was just so stinkin good. I made it for a baby shower and people kept coming back to the dip bowl for more. This will be my standard dip recipe for now on. I can%u2019t imagine finding another recipe better then this one.

My daughter made this recipe to take to her bf's house for something to munch on during the football game, however she was unable to get it out the door fast enough as we all had to dive in to this one. She made the dip according to the recipe adding 4 chili's. This is so much better than the usual velveta cheese dip. Thanks for sharing!

I made this at work today and served it to 6 people. Almost all of it was eaten and one of the girls, who is from Africa, said she will make this at home and eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I only put 2 jalapenos because some didn't like it too hot but I left the seeds in and when I make it at home I will put more. The hotter the better! Everyone gave it 5 stars and if there were more so would it score! Thanks so much for a delicious dip, much better than plain old rotel dip. Nancy
