My Healthy Queso Dip Recipe Without Velveeta Is Healthier

Can you find Velveeta? I have a funny, interesting story. My daughter, Haley, called me from San Francisco and said a friend of hers was looking for Velveeta all over in San Francisco and went to three different places and couldn’t find it. So, I happened to go to the grocery later that day and our grocery store stocked Velveeta cheese.

I think an easy and fun way to serve the Chili Con Queso recipe is an a fondue pot.  The dip keeps hot and you can forget about it.  I really like this electric Cuisinart Fondue Maker because this fondue pot includes an adjustable heat.  Also, a fondue maker makes a nice serving piece and to keep my cheese queso dip warm.

A fondue pot is a great way to keep a dip warm and don’t forgot about using one! Some people use a crock pot, however, sometimes I find those so large for just a dip. I really like the way this fondue pot doubles for a serving piece too.
