Traditional Chile Con Queso for 4-6

+ Free Shipping

Picos’ chile con queso has been bringing in families for more than 36 years! This creamy medium-sharp cheddar and chile-filled blend is great with chips, on top of a rolled enchilada or taco, or as a dipping sauce for tamales!

Chef Arnaldo Richards was raised in Monterey, Mexico, where he began his career cooking at his family’s restaurants. A third-generation chef, he started learning his grandmother’s recipes at age 13, and many of those authentic Mexican dishes and sauces are still on the menu at his legendary restaurant, Picos, which opened in 1984 and remains one of Houston’s most renowned Mexican restaurants.

Ontime and delicious! Gift for my sister’s family & my Dad. They loved the tamales. Traditional Christmas Eve meal. We are all from Arizona and they now live in Indiana, so it was nice to have an Arizona tradition.
