Chile Con Queso ( Emeril ) created by Sandi From CA

This is Emeril's recipe to stir in his chili. We love it for dipping warm tortilla chips too! I've changed a few things to make it more dipping friendly.

    This queso was a hit at our Mexican feast. I used extra-sharp cheddar and colby. Smooth and creamy. I added a few chopped jalapenos. Yummy!

    I don't know what happened here, but I suspect this queso needs a stronger cheese. I used sharp cheddar and everything else exactly as indicated, but the flavor was almost completely absent. Perhaps EXTRA-sharp cheddar would help. Got this recipe from the Food Network and made it with Emeril's chili.
