What could I replace the Velveeta cheese with in this Chili’s Copycat Skillet Queso:
This recipe calls for Velveeta Cheese. I am personally a big fan of it. I know it’s considered not a “real” cheese, but I do think it is delicious, especially in this dish.
If you are looking for a replacement, we have an easy switch.
Here is what we recommend:
- 3-4 cups sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
Bring the ingredients to a small boil over the stove top, at medium heat, stirring constantly.
Continue to make the recipe as directed, in the instructions. This will be a little thinner of a substance, so you may need to add more sharp cheddar cheese, depending on how thick you want the sauce.
We made it using 4 cups and it was thick, but still delicious. For the best results we recommend using Velveeta cheese.
How to make Chili’s Copycat Skillet Queso:
Cut the Velveeta cheese into cubes.
Combine the cheese with the remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Stir frequently until cheese melts.
Enjoy with tortilla chips or bread
