Smoked Chicken Queso

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 starts 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
  7. Top with Pico de Gallo and guacamole
  8. Serve and enjoy

 Twist: Just this!
