Chicken Queso Dip

Is your Facebook feed full of excited football fans too? Everyone is gearing up for the big game and talking about the players, teams and parties to come. I’m not a huge football fan, but I do like a good party! I’ve already started planning what I’m going to serve our guests. It will be mainly close friends and family members, but I want to make a spread they’ll remember. Who knows maybe I’ll sit down and watch a bit of the game too!

I plan to serve the usual fare – beer, pop, chicken wings, veggies and dip and a new yummy appetizer recipe that I’m sure will be the hit of the party: Chicken Queso Dip! Whether you are hosting a tailgating party or watching the game in your living room, you’ll want to serve your guests something delicious.

This particular queso dip is made with RO*TEL and VELVEETA, the perfect marriage of flavors!

Voila – you have yourself a zesty, velvety dip ready to serve.

Of course, you can easily create your own custom queso dip by adding a few of your favorite ingredients. Some ideas of ingredients you could include are bacon, chorizo, ground beef, veggies or ground chicken. Think of it like your own personal “Queso hack”. Be as creative as you want to be and make something memorable.

Take for example my personal “Queso hack” – Chicken Queso Dip. It’s made with VELVEETA, RO*TEL and seasoned ground chicken. I added some spices to the chicken to give it an extra kick.
