Crock-Pot Copycat Chili’s Queso Dip

Our family’s favorite restaurant is Chili’s Bar & Grill. My kids love the chicken strips and I love their Steak & Shrimp Fajitas. We both love their Queso dip as an appetizer. My kids love dipping their tortilla chips in the warm dip and it gives us time to talk. But, I can do this at home and have more quality time with my kids.

This is the closest copycat recipe I have found to their dip. My kids love it and request it at home. I love that I can make it at home and it is cheaper than eating out. Eating out always costs around $40 for a family of three. I can make this dip for under $10 and I do not even have to leave the house.

This is one recipe I make at least once a month. I make a double batch each time and store the leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator. My kids are able to spoon out enough for a snack and heat it in the microwave.
