Chilies and Queso Skillet

I love this Chilies and Queso Skillet , it is easy to put together and stays in the same skillet for serving. South of the border Mexican flavors from a special blend of peppers and season set this dish apart from the average Tex Mex recipe. If you don't want to use it as a dip, just put it between two tortillas, warm in a skillet it makes a fabulous Quesadilla. Serve it on the top of chicken or steak, these flavors will make any dish special. We love this versatile skillet full of goodness and hope you will too.
