Now that you’ve made plans to go grab some Kettle Brand chips, you’ll need a new recipe to dip them in!! I am a lifetime lover and, some might say, connoisseur of queso. To me there is nothing more delightful than a giant scoop of warm, melty, stringy cheese. I’ve eaten many a queso and never have I ever seen queso combined with my favorite of all meats. BACON! So, of course, I had to go there. I used generous amounts of my Homemade Smoked Bacon, fresh garlic, cream cheese, and Monterey jack cheese to create a queso that is ultimately smooth and melty without using any processed American cheese.
Added bonus, this queso recipe is made in one skillet, takes 15 minutes, and tastes so dang good with crispy Kettle Brand chips. I served my queso with both the Sea Salt and Jalapeno flavored chips, and I’ve gotta say the Jalapeno was my favorite. It added just a nice little kick to the queso and kept me going back for more. Hope you guys give this one a try and I super hope that one of my readers wins big in the Kettle Brand Giveaway!! Be sure the watch the video of how to make this awesome skillet bacon queso!
