Cafe Rio Style Queso
- 16 ounces Velveeta
- One 14.5 ounce can petite diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup diced flame-roasted green chiles (medium)
- 2 Tablespoons Mexican hot sauce (Valentina)
Normally I make this “Queso” dip by simply mixing salsa with melted Velveeta. I was out of salsa and made a tasty dip out of Velveeta mixed with a can of tomatoes, roasted green chiles and hot sauce. This tastes very similar to the Queso dip sold at Cafe Rio. Simply melt the Velvetta in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Mix until smooth. Add the tomatoes, green chiles and hot sauce to taste. This is a great appetizer for a party or for a quick afternoon snack. The green chiles I use for so many dishes can be purchased at Costco.
