First of all, queso is lyfe #wordsofwisdom. While that pretty much sums up just about everything for me, I can blab about queso probably forever… And ever. So of course when the sous chef and I order Mexican food, I naturally order an inappropriate amount of queso, and you know, my side order is basically the entree [which I never eat, because I’m too busy drowning in queso]. Because that’s just how I roll — and literally, if I ate as much Mexican as I wanted, I could only roll… and no longer walk.
The sous chef is a huge Steelers football fan [he’ll proceed to claim that I, too, am a Steelers fan — but trust me, I married into it], and it will come as little surprise that my favorite thing about football is making game day food. Some [read: the sous chef] may say that I get a bit overly excited for it [hi babe, you love game day food… xoxo], but let’s be serious: what is NOT to love about queso! And needless to say this is a *perfect* game day recipe for a crowd [or just yourself #noshame]; it’s actually pretty perfect for
breakfastlunchdinneranddessert any time. Like, literally, I will gobble this down for breakfast on the 4th of July. Or cinco de mayo. A wee bit more appropriate, if your into that kind of thing.
And while I love all queso, this queso recipe is near and dear to my heart [and tummy, of course]. It’s packed with crispy pan-fried chorizo [casually begins drooling…] THEN, there’s the jalapeno, smoky chipotle peppers, fresh tomato, green chiles.. and oh! oh! CHEESE. Gooey, melty, savory CHEESE. Three cheeses, to be exact. Need I say more? Okay, okay one last word: Margaritas! Duh.
Pro tip: while Tostitos are great, we recommend dunking Fritos’ crunchy, yummy corn chips in this hearty queso *AMEN* [I know, I know, false advertising in the picture]!
