The Chili for Copycat Queso

Canned chili is a huge part of making this queso perfect! It has to be Chili with NO BEANS! There a few brands out there with no beans. They are all good but I love and always use is Nalley. (I am not getting paid to promote this its just the brand I love!)

You can use any brand.

Making the Copycat Queso

Just throw all the ingredients in a saucepan on your stove and heat it on medium-low heat. DO NOT heat it too hot or it will scorch on the bottom of the pan.

Keep stirring as you slowly heat it. The cheese will take a minute to melt.

This can also be heated in a crockpot on low for 1-2 hours and then can be set to “warm” while you enjoy the game!
