Copycat Chili’s Queso Dip

Looking for a cheesy, savory new dip recipe? This Chili’s copycat recipe is sure to please. Made with ground beef, fire roasted tomatoes, green chili peppers and cheese, what else do you need?!?! Beside the chips of course!

I absolutely love snack foods, and foods that require the use of a chip. I’ve always said that my desert island food would be chips and dip!  This copycat Chili’s queso dip is the perfect accompaniment to lazy football Sundays and would make a great addition to any Super Bowl party spread!  The best part about it is that it only takes about 15 minutes start to finish!

This dip would be a great one to take with you, as you can leave it in a crockpot on warm for a couple hours and it only gets better!
