Recipe Continues Below


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of tortilla bowls. Place bowls on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned on edges and firm to the touch. Bowls will crisp as they cool. Remove to cooling rack to cool, about 10 minutes.
  2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat milk, cheese cubes and shredded cheese over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until smooth.
  3. Stir in green chiles and tomatoes; continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
  4. Spoon cheese mixture into tortilla bowls. Serve immediately with chips.

Expert Tips

  • For fresh toppings, try adding chopped green onion or fresh cilantro leaves.
  • If you like to bring the heat, try Old El Paso™ Shredded 3 Pepper Cheese Blend instead of Old El Paso™ Shredded Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend for even more of a spicy kick to your queso dip.
  • Mini tortilla bowls are baked crisp so they can hold the cheesy dip.
