Football fever & a simple (perfect) dip

Many of our winter weekends include gathering with friends and family watching football (and eating yummy food!). Often we gather in our home, cozy on the couch to watch the big game. These weekends are great, however the real excitement happens when we get out and tailgate! Sporting our fan gear, preparing some football food and packing up the car — always leads to a good time.

I’ve gathered some inspiration for your next tailgate event (indoors or outside):

Cheesy Party Dip

 

This dip is a go-to for “Sunday Fun Day” game-day tailgates (even if it’s in your living room). I like serving dips in individual sized portions. Here, I’ve simple used stemless martini glasses as the vessel to serve the dip. Easy to hold and you get use out of glasses you already have, score!


 

Ingredients

1 can (10 oz each) Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained

1 pkg (16 oz each) Velveeta® Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 Jalapeno, diced (if you like it a bit spicy)

 Directions

Combine undrained tomatoes and cheese in medium saucepan.

Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently.

Top with diced jalapenos.

Serve warm as a dip with tortilla chips, crackers or cut-up fresh vegetables. I like to serve it with pita chips.

The creamy, cheesy taste of Velveeta pairs with fresh and spicy RO*TEL for a delicious Queso Dip perfect for any occasion! Plus, I love how simple it is to whip up (bonus: it will delight all of your football fans in attendance)!
