5 Minute Chili Con Queso

5 Minute Chili Con Queso

Over at Old Hippie Forums, there is a Cookbook forum where members list their favorite recipes. They range from the quick and easy like this one to the exotic Like Fried Rattlesnake.

This is a great way to whip up a small bowl of Chili Con Queso in 5 minutes in your microwave. A brick of Velvetta and a round of Queso Fresco will make four bowls. (About a week around here!)

1/4 large Brick on Velvetta (I use the Low Fat) Cheese
1/4 Round of Queso Fresco Cheese (a white cheese sold in small 5″ diameter 1″ thick rounds)
1/4 jar of your favorite sausa (my wife likes peach — I like habanero)
Splash of milk

Cube the Velvetta and Queso Fresco into small cubes and throw into a ceramic bowl that will be twice the capacity of the ingredients — as it will bubble up in the microwave.

Pour the sausa and then the milk on top. Put bowl on a plate and heat in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Heat again for 1 minute, and then stir. 1 more minute on high ought to do it. Should be very warm and smooth. You may need one more minute depending on your microwave.

Dip corn chips in the Chili con Queso, and drink plenty of Corona.
