  • 1 - 2 JALAPENOS, seeded & chopped
  • 1 cup chopped TOMATOES
  • 1 teaspoon chopped GARLIC
  • 1 cup 2% VELVETTA PROCESSED CHEESE, cubed

  • 1 teaspoon CHILI POWDER (optional)

 

Recipe Info

  1. 1. Heat the oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange the tortilla wedges in the sheet pan in a single layer.  Lightly spray the tortillas with non-stick spray and sprinkle with salt if desired. Heat for 10 minutes or until golden and set aside.


  2. 2. Heat a large heavy bottom skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes & add the olive oil, chopped onion & jalapeno peppers and stir-fry until the onion is golden (about 5 minutes). Add the chopped tomato & garlic and stir-fry for 2 more minutes.

  3.  
  4. 3. Add the cubed processed cheese and cream cheese or O Fat Greek Yogurt and reduce the heat to medium low.  Stir until cheese melts.  Add ½ cup WATER and chili powder if desired; stir until smooth.  Place the warm chili con queso in a mini crock pot on low and serve with the baked tortilla chips.


Makes: 4 cups dip

Note: Queso made with Greek Yogurt will be slightly lumpier than the one made with the fat free cream cheese.
