This recipe for Spicy Queso & Chips is all about the queso.  No more thin queso that drips off your chips!  The spicy chicken quesadilla soup is the secret ingredient that makes this queso thick, creamy and delicious.  Just add some shredded Cheddar cheese and heat until melted.  Serve with crunchy tortilla chips for dipping or over the chips, nacho-style, then you can add your favorite toppings like sliced jalapeño peppers, ripe olives and diced tomato.  There really is no wrong way to serve Spicy Queso & Chips, and since you can make it in only 10 minutes, try it both ways and choose your favorite!


  • 1 can (18.8 ounces) Campbell's® Chunky® Spicy Chicken Quesadilla Soup
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 10 ounces tortilla chips (about 10 cups)


  • Tips

    • You can also serve the queso spooned over the chips, like nachos, then add your favorite nacho toppings (sliced black olives, diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeño).
    • Make the queso in the slow cooker!  Stir the soup and cheese in a 2-quart slow cooker.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour or until the cheese is melted.  Stir before serving.
  • Step 1

    Heat the soup and cheese in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until the cheese is melted, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 2

    Serve the chips with the soup mixture for dipping (if you like, warm the chips in the oven at 350°F. before serving).
