Puerco Carne Queso dip!

chili-con-quesoI know, it’s a bit of a mouthful to say, “Puerco Carne Queso,” but this is a dip that’ll have your guests grinning and drooling like they’d just been dropped on their heads!

It also may seem a tad redundant to put bacon hot sauce in a dish already containing bacon, but sauces made with the Heart of Porcus ingredient base are not mere “bacon flavored sauces.” We’re talking culinary Valhalla here … and that’s not just us saying that; we have heard that, and a hundred or more variations of it, from countless customers worldwide.

But enough with the preamble, let’s get on with it!
