Ninfa's Chile Con Queso


"Copy Cat" recipe for the Chile Con Queso served at Mama Ninfa's in Houston, Texas. It is hands down, the best cheese dip I've ever had!


Ingredients:
1 1/2 Cups Whole Milk OR 1 Cup Whole Milk + 1/2 cup Half and Half
2 lbs Velveeta Cheese
1/3 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
3 T Diced Bell Pepper
1 T Fresh Diced Jalapeno
3 T Diced Onions
2 T Sliced Green Onions
1 Cup Diced Tomatoes
2 T Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1 T Butter

Create double boiler pot; add 1'' water to the bottom of a large pot. Place glass bowl on top of pot, careful that the bowl doesn't touch the water. Add Velveeta and milk, cook on medium low heat until melted, stir as necessary. Add Cheddar Cheese and stir until melted. In a small pan saute bell peppers, onions and fresh jalapenos in butter until tender.

Add tomatoes, cilantro and sauteed vegetables to the cheese. Cook an additional 5 minutes.

Serve with warm tortilla chips and enjoy.
