- In same skillet, heat cream cheese and tomatoes over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cream cheese is smooth. Stir in chiles, cheese and beef mixture; continue cooking about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted and mixture is hot. Pour into heatproof serving bowl. Sprinkle green onion and cilantro on top. Serve warm with chips.
- We like using canned petite diced tomatoes in this taco queso dip for the smaller dice, but regular diced tomatoes can also be used.
