Any other Chili Queso fans in the house?? I absolutely love that place and their queso! When we lived in Texas last year, Chili’s was the only worthwhile sit-down restaurant in the whole town, so we frequented it a lot. Since leaving there, I’ve heard a lot of people say that they can’t eat at Chili’s because they went there so much in Texas, but not Zachary and me. We still eat there all the time! My favorite meal is the honey chipotle chicken crispers. Mmm, good. My favorite appetizer though, is their skillet queso, served nice and warm. I set out on a mission to find a skillet queso copycat recipe that could compare to the real stuff and guys – I’ve found it. It tastes just like the real thing!
I could not stop eating this when we made it. It is so addicting! I guess there are worse things to be addicted to though, right? 😉
