The big game is just a week away, and we are in the planning stages of what to put on the menu. I feel like the Super Bowl is a bigger deal then planning Christmas dinner! One thing we will definitely be serving is this cheesy Queso Fundido, which is the perfect game food as it is hearty while being gooey enough to make nibbling fun(dido).
We teamed up with Old El Paso to create this spicy, cheesy dip that is seasoned with their green enchilada sauce as well as loads of chopped chilis. Don’t worry, this recipe has just enough heat to make it interesting, while being pleasant to nosh on. It is not slap in the face spicy. Be sure to serve it piping hot with lots of tortillas chips.
