Chili Con Queso Bites

Monica Keleher


First saw this recipe on facbook and read the comments and thought I can make these better. I made two versions, spicy sausage, and bacon. They were both wonderful. The boys loved the bacon ones. My youngest said wow mom, Awesome!
Hope you try them and like them as much as we did.
