Bob Barker's Mexican Chili Con Queso

Frugal Celebrities Recipes Compiled by Vicki McClure Davidson


Bob Barker, the affable, popular, retired celebrity game-show host of US TV's The Price Is Right and long-time animal rights proponent, has a winner here with this easy and delicious chili con queso.

It's a perfect dip for family gatherings or Monday Night Football. For additional "heat," you can substitute hotter diced chili peppers for the more mild bell peppers. However, don't add the same quantity—start by adding just a tablespoon of the hotter peppers and increase, if desired.

Try this milder version first, though, because it is bursting with flavor without the "heat."


Bob Barker's Mexican Chili Con Queso

Sauté the onions and green pepper in butter or margarine. Melt Velveeta cheese cubes and mix with onion and green pepper. Add a can of pimentos with liquid. Season with chili powder and garlic salt.

Serve warm with tortilla chips, warmed pita bread, or lahvosh. Save any leftovers in the fridge and mix in rice and/or beans as a side dish for dinner later in the week.
