    Default Another Faulty RFR Recipe - Queso

    I really don't even know why rec.food.recipes still exists. It's
    certainly more trouble than it's worth. There are a zillion
    recipes on the Internet and everything posted there can be had
    from a simple Altavista search - without waiting for a reply.
    And without the obvious typographical errors (as in the below
    recipe).

    The UUCP and FidoNet days are well over.

    Tex-Mex Chile con Queso
    Serves 4

    Like many San Antonio restaurants, Mi Tierra, where we
    encountered this recipe, served our chile con queso (Texans call
    it just queso) with multicolored tortilla chips.

    1 cup grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
    12 cup Velveeta, cut into pieces
    12 cup heavy cream
    2 Tbsp chopped peeled yellow onion
    2 Tbsp diced tomato
    1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and diced
    1012 oz. homemade or top-quality store bought Tortilla Chips

    Put cheddar and Velveeta into a medium pot set over another pot
    of simmering water over medium heat and heat until cheese mixture
    is nearly melted. Add cream and stir constantly with a wooden
    spoon until cheese mixture is hot and smooth, 35 minutes.
    Transfer melted cheese mixture to a serving dish and sprinkle
    onions, tomatoes, and jalapenos on top. Serve immediately with
    chips.

    I'm assuming some '/' (or maybe '-') characters got lost at some point.

    Holy cow! 12 cups each of Velveeta and cream and 1012 oz. of chips and this
    serves 4? Those 4 will be eating it forever!

    I make a quick Espinaca Con Queso by mixing equal parts of Velveeta and
    cream cheese, then thinning down with jarred salsa and adding some chopped
    fresh spinach after the cheese is melted. The spinach doesn't take long to
    cook. I don't measure. Just do it to taste and when it looks right.

    If you don't want the spinach, add canned chilies and you have Chili Con
    Queso.

    I usually doctor this up a bit by adding whatever I have around the house.
    Extra tomatoes, chopped green onions, hot peppers, etc.

    12's should be 1/2 and 1012 should be 10-12.

    That is, unless you can eat 64 pounds of tortilla chips with some
    awfully thin cheese sauce.

    Nor do I understand why people read it and then copy its recipes over
    here. What's the point? We get plenty of target practice at our own
    submissions. The only thing that's interesting about this one is the
    picture of Texans standing and stirring cheese for 35 minutes. -

    I expect the plasticizers in the 12 cups of velveeta would take care of
    the thin issue.

    I don't go and have never been, why do you go? It exists for others, IME.

    So check this out - she posts a retraction/errata:

    > Somehow the '1/2 cup' turned into 12 cups when I converted the text
    > from HTML to Plain Text. Sorry about that!


    And then she posts the same exact thing again, including the 7
    pounds of tortilla chips:

    > 1 cup grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
    > 12 cup Velveeta, cut into pieces (that says ONE HALF!)
    > 12 cup heavy cream (again, ONE HALF)

    > 2 Tbsp diced tomato

    > 1012 oz. homemade or top-quality store bought Tortilla Chips

    .....

    Duh.
