Chili’s Skillet Queso Dip Copycat Recipe

Chili’s is one of my favorite restaurants. If I have to pick a place to go it’s always Chili’s mainly because I’m obsessed with their Skillet Queso Dip. So. Freaking. Good. I was playing around on Pinterest (what’s new??), when I came across a Chili’s  Skillet Queso Dip copycat recipe, it took all I had not to immediately get in the car to pick up the ingredients. And I’ll be completely honest here. I did not win that battle. Within an hour I was on my way to the store to pick up the ingredients.

And o.m.g. this copy cat recipe was spot on, even with the change I made. YUM. The only thing I felt that was off was the color! But does the color really matter when the taste is so good? I think not!
