This easy to make Queso Dip is perfect for game day!
Confession: I like football, but I LOVE football food.
I get excited whenever a big game roles around and it is time to plan the menu.
First up: something cheesy, comforting and totally indulgent.
But just because we are indulging for a big night, doesn’t mean we have to whip out the processed cheese. Seriously, have you ever read the ingredient list? Um, thanks, but I’ll pass.
Instead, I like to stick with real food, like today’s Cheese Dip.
This splurge-worthy dip is packed with flavor. You can serve it with gluten-free (and preferably organic) tortilla chips, but I also love it drizzled over veggies. I limit the peppers so that the boys will eat it, but if you are serving just adults feel free to add more.
