Recipe Name: Chile con queso y carne
History: This is a true Tex-Mex dish, modified for a palate that likes it hot!
Serving Size: 25
Preparation Time: about 30 minutes

2 lb Velveeta cheese, diced
1 lb Hamburger meat
2 cans Rotel diced chilies and tomatoes
1 cup chopped onion
1 TBS ground cumin
2-6 jalapenos, seeded and chopped fine
1 TBS Chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)
2 Large bags of corn tortilla chips
Brown the ground beef with the onion, salt & pepper. Place the diced cheese in a double boiler, on medium heat. Add to the cheese: cumin, chili powder, diced jalapeno, cilantro & browned ground beef. Heat and stir until thoroughly mixed. Serve warm with corn tortilla chips. I usually use about 6 jalapenos because I like it hot!! Add or delete jalapenos according to your taste.
