+Chile con Queso batch size: the ingredient amounts definitely make a 'party batch' size; if desiring a smaller amount, cut recipe in half.
*I purchase an organic pre-grated Mexican cheese blend of Colby, Monterey Jack and Cheddar mixed which is perfect for recipes like this. If that is not available grate your own cheese ensuring Cheddar be included (both for flavor and color).
Prep Time: the time for the roasted chilies to cool is included in the prep time. The prep and cooking for the dips can easily overlap and have both dips done within 30 minutes unless the chilies take longer to cool before handling.
