Chile con Queso
Chile con queso is the traditional cheese dip of Texas. Great chile con queso is easy to make, and nothing like what you find at the ballpark or movie theater.
Turn heat to low, and add the grated cheeses, stirring until cheese melts. When ready to serve, stir in the sour cream, just until well combined, and remove from heat. Do not boil.
Serve warm with tortilla chips.Makes about 4 cups.
Note: Keep the Queso warm during serving in a dish with a candle warmer or an electric dip warmer. Medium-sharp cheddar cheese may be substituted for Longhorn cheese. Readers may also enjoy John Raven's article on chips and dips.
