Description

Ten ingredients and 20 minutes are all you need for this velvety, rich, and dangerously addictive Tex-Mex Chili Con Queso recipe. It’s also gluten-free.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped (you can use canned diced jalapeño peppers or green chiles if you prefer; just add them with the tomatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth
  • 8 American cheese singles, cut up
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • Fresh cilantro for garnishing (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a cast-iron skillet or a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and sauté the onion, garlic, and jalapeño (if using fresh) with cumin, salt, and cornstarch for 2 to 3 minutes, until the onion is translucent.
  2. Add the broth and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir constantly, allowing the sauce to thicken.
  3. Add the cheese and tomatoes. Carefully simmer the queso over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir and adjust its thickness to suit your taste by adding more broth or cheese.
  4. Serve hot with tortilla chips.

Notes

  • Other cheese alternatives: pepper jack cheese, sharp cheddar cheese.
  • If using canned jalapeño peppers, add them with the cheese and tomatoes at step 3. Start with 1 tablespoon and adjust the taste by adding more if desired.
