Delicious chili queso that is full of amazing flavor and is sure to be a hit!


Chili Queso in a red serving dish.

I made this chili queso a couple of weeks ago for our superbowl party. I was inspired by Buffalo Wild Wing’s chili queso. It took queso to a whole different level by loading queso up with a lot of amazing flavors!

I could have just made this for the Superbowl party and I would have been completely content. It was an absolute hit and everyone couldn’t get enough of it. Me and the hubby even had to have a midnight snack of it because it was so good! This is the perfect crowd pleasing queso dip. Superbowl or not, this makes the best snack and is sure to be a hit!
