Chevys Zesty Queso Dip

I ask my boys, how does queso sound? They look at me thinking I might have been hit on the head. When have they never wanted queso? Ever.

This is a copycat recipe & credit goes to Top Secret Recipes. Hands down it’s the best queso I’ve ever tried. It’s perfect for work functions, you make it in advance and heat it in a crockpot. In addition for dipping chips, you can add it to tacos, breakfast burritos - anything you want to bump up the zesty cheesy factor.  A dollop of this into mac & cheese would be incredible.  I double the batch and freeze the other 1/2.
