Hari Om... am I correct in thinking that queso is a bit like a Mexi-fondue? I'd like that recipe!!!Eyes-on... YAM xx
It is - you can play with the spices. Cumin and a lesser amount of nutmeg work well as a substitute for these listed below as I know you don't do onion and garlic. The cumin/nutmeg combo by itself with the cheeses is good.
Totally want that recipe! 90% clean eating, 10% fun! I am missing the fun these days on the elimination diet.

It looks delicious! Is sharing mandatory lol?C
Absolutely. (NOT!) But I was good today, the squirrel cafeteria had a "nacho bar" and I stayed away (I can NOT resist nachos) and I had my "chicken" salad with the veggie chicken, apples, walnuts, plain Greek yogurt and a few drops of honey in a pita with some raw veggies on the side and one small homemade oatmeal cookie for dessert.
Thanks for visiting. Having been fortunate enough not to have to diet as a young woman - hitting middle age to find my Metabolism moved to Aruba and didn't even send a postcard was a rude awakening. Thanks for sharing the fun and the pain of getting back in shape. Note: If you are a stranger and include a link in your comment - it will not be posted, to ensure no SPAM or viruses are shared.
