My version of Chili’s Skillet Queso Dip Recipe

17 Feb

We love this dip. So do our friends when they come over! I usually end up making this for football game gatherings at our place on a Sunday afternoon. My favorite chip for it is the hint of lime tortilla ones, and scoops work great too since the dip is kinda heavy with chunks of ground beef. Sorry the pic below sucks. I wasn’t thinking about blogging the recipe at the time.

16 oz of Velvetta

1 cup milk

2 15oz cans of Hormel Chili (no beans)

.75 lb of ground beef

Brown ground beef in frying pan. Drain oil.

Melt 16oz of Velvetta cheese on stove in medium to large pot over medium to med-high heat. adjust as needed. you can cube the cheese first to help it melt faster.

As the cheese starts melting, mix in the 2 cans of hormel chili. stir.

Continue mixing until everything is melted together nicely.

Add in all the seasonings (paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, chili powder) and lime juice.
