Even though Pace Sauce is not a thing here in Africa I was, nonetheless, intrigued by this recipe so gave it a try with a bit of improv on the side. This is a really good cocktail snack and one which disappeared in under 10 minutes at the drinks party we had over the weekend!

These sound like a super quick and tasty thing to whip up before watching a movie or a game. I agree that using some pepper jack or other spicy cheese instead (or in addition to) the cheddar would be fun to try. I really like spicy foods, and I don't mind kicking up the heat a bit.

These Chili Con Queso Bites look totally awesome. They are so easy to make and it takes less than half an hour. I like this as you can whip them up whenever you need something making a snack for teenage boys who never seem to get enough to fill them.

I feel like these would be a great tailgate party or Superbowl snack! They're quick to make, have good flavor, and bite-sized with no mess. Cheddar works well but maybe a pepperjack cheese would be good, too!

Sounds good to me. Can't wait to make them.. I crave spicey foods.

As one who VERY SELDOM salts ANYthing, (Salt is not healthy) It looks good to me.

I only made a half batch. They were very good, but they needed salt. Therefore, I would add salt to taste in the recipe. I was also thinking that corn would also be good in the bites. I will try that next time I make them.
