Chile Con Queso from New Mexico
One of the first New Mexico recipes I learned to make when I moved to New Mexico was this Chile Con Queso which was served at about every party and get-together I attended. This concoction was never meant to be a health food. The main ingredient is Velveeta.
Now you may ask, as I did, what Velveeta is doing in a traditional New Mexican dish. My research tells me it was the first cheese that didn't need to be refrigerated, and a boon to those households that had little refrigeration.
We made this for our family "Thanksmas" last week, and had some leftover, so I put it in the ham and been soup I made. Delicioso! T'would be good in posole too.
