Chili topped with queso sauce?
 
Today we had a huge craving for our special family chili adorned with homemade queso sauce. It was sweet, sweet, nectar! It was beautiful, a little bit of rice, topped with chili, topped with the queso sauce. With sweet buttermilk mini corn muffins on the side. Has any else tried queso sauce as a topping for their chili?

Hi fairygirl - that sounds like a scrumptious dinner, especially with the buttermilk corn muffins. :yum:

Sometimes I like a little shredded cheese on my chili, and I usually use cheddar. 'Queso' means cheese, so from your post you made a cheese sauce, but it could be from one or a combination of several kinds of cheese. How did you make your homemade sauce?

I like chili on top of baked potatoes, that's pretty much the only time I'll put cheese on top of chili. I don't make a sauce though, just shredded. Topped with thinly sliced green onions and a dollop of sour cream. Now I'm craving that. :yum:

Never tried queso sauce on top of chili ( not sure exactly what it is , and Id love a recipe).
What Ive been doing recently, is making polenta. Let it get sit so it gets firm, then grill it.

I then take a piece of the grilled polenta, top it with chili, then top that with cheddar cheese, broil it to melt the cheese...

Add flour stir and continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes.

Add cheese and taco seasoning, cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

We just had that the other night.Not the muffins though.It was really good.
My sons made late night nachos with it.Hubby used it as a sub for cheddar cheese in a burrito.It's a great dipping sauce for taquito's sign me up!:chef:
Wondering now how well it would work for the next time I make tamales.
Something to think about.

I bet it would make a great drizzle over slices of a tamale pie :yum:
