That being said. Let me tell you about that little pot of golden deliciousness. I accepted a challenge from a friend who really wanted a copycat Cafe Rio queso recipe. So, I went to Cafe Rio to get some nachos, because duh, nachos. And then I went home, ate all the nachos, and all the queso and then…I made more queso.
This perfectly creamy wonderfully processed cheese dip is full of salsa, jalapeños and 3 kinds of cheese. All. The. CHEESE. Now you just need one thing.
