Personal Notes:
I had Chile con Queso for the first time in a wonderful Cafe/Billiards Parlor named Gordos', in Austin, Texas. It was one of the original establishments on the now-famous 6th Street and where I worked and met many of my closest friends more than 30 years ago...it's remained in my family all these years and is one of my own kids' favorites.
