Queso, also known as chili con queso, is a Tex-Mex cheese dip. The origins of queso come from Chihuahua, Mexico. However, queso is not a popular dish in Mexico. If you’re looking to order queso, you are much more likely to find this dip on an American menu.
Tex-Mex food got its start in San Antonio, Texas in 1900 when Otis Farnsworth opened the first modern Tex-Mex restaurant. Then, in 1918, Velveeta was invented. Velveeta is often used to make queso dip. However, when Velveeta was first released, it wasn’t as popular as it is now.
The exact origin of queso is highly disputed, but many people believe “Little Mexico” was the first establishment to serve it. Little Mexico was a restaurant located in Arkansas, which was open in 1935. By 1939, Velveeta caught on. A cookbook published a recipe for queso that called for Velveeta during the 30s.
