Copycat Chili's Queso Dip

We have an obsession with Chili's Queso in this house. When I say obsession, I mean it. We talk each other into ordering queso from Chili's probably about once a week, and while we usually just pick it up curbside to go, we needed something we could make at home to satisfy our frequent cravings. This recipe is super easy to throw together and makes a great dip for a party. We served it at our Superbowl party and were scraping the bowl clean.

You will need:

  • 1 can of chili, If you want a more authentic Chili's taste, buy the "No Bean" kind. We decided we didn't mind the beans.
  • 1 15 oz jar of Tostitos Medium Salsa Con Queso

Mix the two together in a crockpot and cook on low for 4-5 hours. When we first tried this, my husband tasted the mixture an hour or so into cooking and he was convinced we had made a terrible mistake, but somewhere between the first hour and a few hours later, something magical happened. The flavors melded together into something awesome. Now if we have a choice we always hit up Chili's, because Hello Awesome, but we rest assured knowing we can keep queso a part of our weekly lives even if we can't make it all the way to the restaurant.
