    Very good with some tweeking

    I agree with some that this needs more flavor. The second time I made these, I used Rotel tomatoes and chili's instead of picante sauce. (I forgot to buy the picante sauce) . I added just a touch of hot sauce and cayenne. Then I cooked a little bulk type sausage and very soft scrambled some eggs in with the sausage, added a touch of hot sauce and spooned it over the base recipe before cooking. They were AWESOME for a finger food breakfast for a road trip.

    Great appetizer

    I used a hot picante sause and also added chicken & chopped chili's for more flavor. I also used a smaller size muffin tin. They came out good. You just have to doctor the recipe up a bit but their ideal for an appetizer if their made smaller. Went over great in my house!

    Chili Con Queso Bites

    Nothing but a mushy mess. No flavor, they didn't completely fall apart but there was no way this was finger food.

    I didn't care for the egg in this recipe. also, once cold they were not too good.
