Abuelo's Queso recipe

This is the Abuelo’s restaurant’s recipe for Chile con Queso. They graciously shared their exact recipe on their Facebook page and I made it immediately. It’s definitely a step up from the queso I usually make the kids, which is just Velveeta a can of Rotel and milk. Granted, my way is quick and easy! I only get to eat at Abuelos a few times a year when we are in Texas or Orlando, so I love being able to recreate their recipes at home. I may borderline stalk their Facebook page checking for recipes.

    Was wanting to make the Abeulo’s queso dip, but the Land O’ Lakes brand of cheese is sold to restaurants or everywhere I can order is like minimum of 6 blocks and over $100. Wondered if you had tried it using Velvetta brand?
