January/February 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4 (180 votes)

Our healthier version of chile con queso will have ooey-gooey-cheese lovers celebrating. Now you can enjoy this Tex-Mex dip without all the fat and calories. We replaced some of the cheese with a low-fat white sauce and used sharp Cheddar plus a splash of beer to boost the flavor. Our version cuts the calories in half and reduces total fat and saturated fat by nearly 60 percent.

It had good flavor hiding underneath the beer and the corn starch. The 3 tablespoons of corn starch was overkill. It left it with a chalky aftertaste. And so much of it was not needed. It can be made without the beer and still tastes awesome. I added the scallions and cilantro into the dip instead of serving fresh on the top and then added 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and it was great!

Easy to make

Better than store bought.

This dip was a hit in our house! The teenage boys did not even know it was low calorie until I spilled the beans. I was told it could be a little thicker, so next time I will add another 1/2 tsp of cornstarch. Otherwise, it was perfect for super bowl sunday.

less calories, cheesy and flavorful

Wonderful Flavor

I loved the hint of beer taste in the cheese. I made as directed and moved the cheese to a mini crock pot to keep it warm for New Years Eve. The next day I heated it up slowly in the same crock pot. De-Lish!
