You know what I LOVE doing copy cat recipes and I like recipes with as little ingredients as possible – because less ingredients usually mean less money spent.

Today I am tackling Chili’s Famous Queso – now Chili’s does not list their queso as gluten free but I asked the chef at one of their restaurants and he said no flour was used. So after “tasting” the queso I got to work!

After many attempts this one is VERY close + it is SUPER YUMMY. Lick the bowl yummy ๐Ÿ˜‰

What You Need


1.5 lbs of Velveeta Cheese

2 Cans of Hormel Chili ( No Beans)


What To Do

Get out that old crock pot and plop the two cans of Hormel Chili in it ๐Ÿ™‚

Make sure to turn the crock pot to low.

Add 1 Teaspoons of Pepper and Mix

Mix – Mix – Mix

Add the cheeseย  – I cut the cheese into slices for easier melting

Put the top on the crock pot and take the next 2 hours off – just mix occasionally

Heat up your chips – I place them in the oven at 300 for 5 minutes


Budget Savvy Diva's Queso !

Of course I served my queso in a skillet just like they do in Chili’s ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is Chili’s Queso

They do look pretty similar don’t they ๐Ÿ˜‰

I came up with the ultimate recipe on my own but the building blocks for the recipe came from Kraft Foods site
