This is recipe #2 from The Pioneer Woman Cooks! that I can check off my 101 Things to do in 1001 Days list. Previously I made Ree's Chicken and Bacon Sandwich. Another winner!
Chile Con Queso, Revved Up
Makes many servings, plus extra for freezing
2 lb package Velveeta Cheese
1 lb package Hot Breakfast Sausage (Jimmy Dean, Potter’s, etc.)
½ large onion
1 regular can Rotel (either Regular or Extra Hot, according to preference)
1 7-oz can diced green chilies
1 to 3 finely diced jalapeno peppers, according to preference. (If you like things more spicy,
leave the seeds and white membranes.) I skipped this since I didn't feel like making a trip to the store
1. Chop the onion and brown with the breakfast sausage. Drain excess fat so you won’t have a
coronary. Cut Velveeta into cubes and add to warm skillet. Add Rotel and green chilies, and stir
together over low heat until mixture is melted. Add finely diced jalapenos, stir together, and serve warm with tortilla chips. During serving, Queso needs to be kept warm, either in a fondue pot, chafing dish, or Crock Pot.
2. Queso can be frozen flat in Ziploc bags and reheated.
Many thanks to The Pioneer Woman Cooks! for the recipe!
