Chili’s Skillet Queso

Appetizers · Recipes · January 18, 2018

Chili's Copycat Skillet Queso - so good and takes just minutes to make!! It's great served at parties and holiday functions.

Did you make it until midnight? I’m happy to report that we actually did!! Amazing, I know! All of us were awake at midnight and all of us were down and out for the count ten minutes after that, lol! Haha. Even though our New Year’s Eve was filled with fun and appetizers, I still have a few appetizers I wanted to share with you this week that will be perfect for Superbowl coming up, like today’s recipe for Chili’s queso recipe.

The recipe is one the hubby wanted has been dying for me to try. Every time we go to Chili’s he orders the queso and loves it! He knew we could find a copycat version and we did, and it taste JUST LIKE Chili’s version.  I LOVE the salsa too, which I finally figured out how to make (for the recipe go HERE).  We only made one minor adjustment but we are so glad that we can now make the queso recipe and salsa at home without going to Chili’s (since going to a restaurant with 6 kids isn’t so easy these days!!) 😉

    Thanks to you, I also plan on getting a food processor just so I can make the hummus I keep seeing floating around your blog! We’re obsessed with hummus and that would be so much more affordable!
