Chiles Con Queso (Chilies in Cheese Sauce)
60 mins (prep 45, cooking 15)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
A cheese fondue with a difference. The chilies and tequila give this cheese sauce quite a kick. It makes an excellent starter or light lunch. Heating the chilies will bring out their sweetness, as the natural sugars in them will caramelise. Removing the seeds from the chilies reduces the heat.
