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. 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.

Mix Velveeta with milk and melt in a double boiler (or you can place in a microwave proof bowl and microwave for approximately 45 seconds, stirring once).
While the cheese is melting, melt the butter in a sauté pan and add the rest of ingredients and cook until tender, being careful not to burn.
When cheese mix is melted, add the sauté ingredients to bowl and using a plastic spatula fold together.
