Spicy Southwest Queso Dip


This football season when you have a hungry crowd and you’re in need of a quick and easy appetizer, look no further than this classic Spicy Southwest Queso Dip made with the Famous VELVEETA and RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chilies. 
Spicy Southwest Queso Dip

Football and snacking pretty much go hand-in-hand, am I right?

I’m a huge fan of chips and dip.

My pantry is always stocked full of chips. It’s embarrassing how many bags of chips are actually in there.

So when I was asked to create a classic queso dip using the famous VELVEETA & RO*TEL diced tomatoes with green chiles duo, it was almost like the snack Gods were looking down upon me and smiling. Go forth, make a cheesy concoction and feed the masses.

Spicy Southwest Queso Dip

This spicy queso (melted cheese dip) is kicked up a notch by using the VELVEETA Mexican Mild Cheese. If you don’t like a spicy version of smoking hot liquid gold dripping from your chips, then stick to the classic VELVEETA Cheese.

It’s still mouthwatering and disappears just as quick.

The combination of VELVEETA and RO*TEL diced tomatoes with green chilies is such a classic that they have loaded up a truck full of the Famous Queso Dip, called The Quesobago, and it’s making a cross-country tour of college football’s hottest rivalries! Visit www.quesoforall.com for the Famous Queso Dip and other Queso recipes, the Quesobago tour schedule and for a chance to win a party featuring the Quesobago on football’s biggest game day.

Spicy Southwestern Queso Dip

I was even asked to make a short video to show you how easy it is to make this dip, and how perfect it is to feed those hungry football fans.

I’m going to be honest- I love football season because I invite all our friends over, the boys will watch football and us girls kick back in the kitchen, chatting and snacking on tasty appetizers.

Well, I take video making and queso very seriously. So I created a video {based off of real life events} which captures the essence of men, their love of football, their hunger, and the cheesy dip that saves the day.

Watch it for yourself…

That totally happened.
