This recipe is to die for! It's a hot cheese dip with Mexican flavours and is great to whip up when you have a few friends over for some drinks.

I remember as a kid going out with my family to our local Mexican restaurant Acapulco Annie's and ordering this every single time!

3 spring onions, sliced thinly, reserving half for garnish
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Mexican seasoning spice
1/2 tsp chilli powder
Handful of coriander, chopped finely
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 block Kraft velveeta cheese, grated
2 TBSP parmesan cheese
4 tbsp jalapeno chillis, chopped finely, reserving half for garnish
1 cup milk

Place everything in a microwave safe jug and heat on high for 3-4 minutes whisking halfway. Mixture should be thick, hot and combined.

Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with spring onions,jalapeno chillies and cracked pepper. Serve with corn chips and raw vegetable sticks.

Leftovers can be refrigerated and gently reheated within 4-5 days.

  1. Can't wait to try. What is the Mexican seasoning spice? Is it a mix at Woolies/Coles?

  2. How did I miss this post? I've never made a Chilli Con Queso before! Might be about time to change that!

    1. Yes you must make it! It's so delicious! I even reheated some the next day and sat on the couch with corn chips and ate it all myself!

  3. Hi April,

    Looks a great recipe!

    Chilli Con Queso was hugely popular at Acapulco Annies as most customers started off with this along with Guacamole.

    Our recipe was a lot more simpler and Carnation evaporative milk was used.
