Queso Fundido Recipe

Is it really a football party without a cheese dip? Oh man, I could eat an embarrassing amount of cheese dip if I didn’t have to share with others. I know when I have parties, I make all this food to share with people, but in most cases I make dishes that I just want to eat. And I get very excited when there are leftovers that I can eat by myself on the couch the next day. Other people have these fantasies too, right? Please?

Cheese dips always seem to be the biggest hits at parties and the ones I grew up on used Velveeta as the staple. I will eat these dips until the day I die, no one can tell me how bad Velveeta is, I don’t care because I love them. But I also love the Queso Fundido dips at restaurants that have actual cheese in them and they have the best stringy quality when you dip your chip into it. Plus all the good grease that pools on the sides. (This is not a health food blog in case you didn’t know before) So, I bring to you a recipe for a super yummy Queso Fundido. Not hard, one pan and lots of veggies and meat within the stringy cheese.

Check out the recipe below, no strange ingredients and super simple to make. Follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolohomekitchen. Be sure to snap a pic if you make a Lolo’s recipe and tag it with #lolohk. I love to see what you are making!
