Mexican restaurants in California and other states may serve queso flameado or queso fundido as an appetizer. These are authentic Mexican dishes, and they differ in consistency. Yellow cheeses are generally used in Tex-Mex style chile con queso. However, white cheeses may also be used (Asadero, Oaxaca, Chihuahua), and blended with cream or half-and-half during cooking.
Chile con queso is a warm dish, heated to a desired temperature.
Tex-Mex restaurants usually offer tortilla chips and salsa as an appetizers, free of charge. Chile con queso is usually offered for an additional charge. It can be made with various cheeses. Usually it is white or yellow in color.
Chile con queso is called "queso" by Texans. It should not be confused with "cheese dip," an inaccurate colloquialism used by people unfamiliar with Tex-Mex cuisine.
