Chili Queso Dip

Sunday is the day of the week I love the most. It's when I can start the day by going to church, a day I have to spend with Joel and Patrick, a day I invite friends over for dinner, and especially this time of year, a day to tailgate! Now with football season in full swing, we love having friends over to watch a game together with our favorite tailgating fare. Chips are a staple for our game day gatherings and my favorite is this Chili Queso Dip. Smooth and creamy VELVEETA cheese and mildly spicy RO*TEL diced tomatoes melt together deliciously before having chili and green onions stirred in for a popular, addicting dip...

We love chips and dip at our house and probably the easiest dip we all love is a queso dip. 'What's queso?' you may ask? Queso is a creamy, zesty dip, it’s SO good—make it the next time you have a few friends over to watch football! It's easy to make with VELVEETA cheese & RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chilies. Simply combine, heat up, stir and serve up with chips! Half the country has never even heard of Queso! If you love Queso, help spread the word by joining the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using #quesoforall.

As much as I like Queso dip, I also especially like making chili for our tailgating parties. I wanted to incorporate into a dip, so in this case, I stirred it in the traditional queso for a whole new spin on a classic favorite.

The next time you entertain, serve the crowd-pleasing Famous Queso Dip made with just two ingredients; creamy VELVEETA & RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chilies. Serve it as-is or throw in your own twist by using one of a few kinds of VELVEETA flavors, your choice of RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chilies, and even toss in something extra like chopped vegetables, sliced sausage, crumbled bacon or whatever inspires you!

Keep a lookout for the VELVEETA & RO*TEL Quesobago, loaded with Famous Queso Dip, which is making a cross-country tour to college football’s hottest rivalries. They'll have plenty of their queso to share and keep the tailgating spirit alive! Here are the upcoming game stops the Quesobago will be making:
