I love to watch “Eat Street” on The Cooking Channel . . . they showcase the best street food that can be found from vendors that prepare any and all kinds of delicious foods from vending trucks. One episode that stood out in my memory was Cross Cut Sliders. I can’t remember the exact way they prepared them, only that they sandwiched mini burgers between cross cut fries and there was a dripping melting cheese involved. It looked ooey gooey good! Since I have some fresh “Hatch” green chile on hand it sounded too good not to make some sliders with green chile and melting queso. They are too messy for finger food, you’ll definitely need a knife and fork for these guys.

One of my guilty pleasures is chips and Espinaca Queso dip. This creamy blend of cheese, spinach and jalapenos has become my favorite queso dip. It’s made with Velveeta Queso Blanco which I know isn’t the healthiest choice but you just can’t beat the way is melts to perfection. It tastes so good combined with fresh spinach, tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. I made Tex-Mex burrito bowls and spooned some of this creamy cheese over top. I got thumbs up all around!

It’s the perfect side dish to a to a big juicy burger or barbecue sandwich. Continue reading

A couple years ago we ate at Old Chicago which is a chain restaurant here in the Kansas City area, maybe you have one too. They are best known for their pizza and calzones which are huge and taste fantastic. Josh had this “Texican Calzone” that he just raved about and wanted to get again. Next time we were there the menu had changed and it was no longer available. He never forgot that calzone and so I did some research, found an old menu with the description and went about trying to break it down so that I could make it for him. I think I hit the jackpot because he was all smiles when these came out of the oven. Just wait until you slice into the inside, you’ll see what I mean.
