I learned how to make a chili con queso recipe and loved it. It is a perfect match with a creamy melted cheese blended with chili spices or chili peppers. Like “chili” there are so many different versions. These dishes are generally served as appetizers and are accompanied with tortilla chips.
If you are learning how to make a chili con queso recipe, it is known as a Tex Mex recipe meaning that it is a blend of the Mexican cuisine with Texas cuisine. It has become common for the people of the states bordering Mexico to combine the foods in their recipes. Throughout the rest of the United States, these recipes are called Mexican but in actuality they are not from Mexico.
Like the chili con queso recipe, chili con carne and fajitas are all part of the Tex Mex recipes. These recipes usually have heavy creamy cheeses, meats and beans from the southern United States. Mexican spices, peppers and tortillas are combined with these ingredients.
If you are learning how to make a chili con queso recipe, however you want to categorized these Tex Mex recipes it is up to you. I love the combinations and flavors. I find them very good in appetizers like a recipe for Tex Mex dip skillet dishes, casseroles, a bowl of chili with cheese or even in the cheese stuffed chili peppers. They are all so delicious!
