Smoked Chicken Queso

25 Mar

My family and I visited a local restaurant last year. We ordered the brisket queso appetizer, which looked and tasted very good. Sadly, I was unable to enjoy the dish because it was very spicy and contained beef, which I very rarely eat.

Yesterday, my husband smoked some chicken. It was very delicious as usual, and the taste had me thinking about the appetizer we had last year. So, I decided that I would try to twist it using the smoked chicken. I figured this would be a great snack for the March Madness season, which is very popular in my home.


· 1 cup cubed smoked chicken (¾ chicken for cheese mixture, ¼ as a topping)

· ¼ block pasteurized cheese (I used cheese Velveeta Mexican)

· 2 cups tortilla chips

· ¼ cup water (or 2% milk)

· ¼ teaspoon ground cumin

· ¼ cup Pico de Gallo

· 3 tablespoons guacamole


1.    Heat cheese in a saucepan over medium-low heat until cheese start to melt

2.    Add water or milk and stir

3.    Add ¾ cup of cubed chicken until well blended

4.    Arrange tortilla chips in a serving dish

5.    Pour cheese over chips

6.  Sprinkle cumin powder

6.    Top with Pico de Gallo and guacamole

7.    Serve and enjoy

Twist: Just this!
