Two “Cheesy” Ways to Reinvent Game Day Favorites

We’re in the thick of football season and there’s nothing we love more than kicking back with a bowl full of queso and our friends to watch the games. And while the original queso made with only Ro*tel and Velveeta is pretty great on its own, we came up with a couple of twists inspired by some of our favorite game watching treats.



But before we go too far, check out this post to acquaint yourself with the basic queso recipe.

First things first, you’ve gotta try making the basic queso by following our tutorial here. Now let’s dive into our new twists!

Buffalo Chicken Queso: What goes better with a football game than wings? This queso takes it to the next level by combining queso with chicken.

Ingredients:

– 1 16-oz. package VELVEETA

– 1 12-oz. can RO*TEL

– 1/4 cup ranch dressing

– 1-2 tablespoons hot sauce

– 1/2 cup shredded rotisserie chicken

Follow the recipe for basic queso and stir in ranch and hot sauce, heating as necessary until melted. Shred rotisserie chicken and stir into queso. Serve with a dollop of hot sauce, ranch, and chicken on top.

 

Brats and Beer Queso: Standard tailgate fare is taken to the next level.

Ingredients:

– 1 16-oz. package VELVEETA

– 1 12-oz. can RO*TEL

– 1/2 cup sausage, cooked and crumbled

– 1/2 bottle beer

Follow the recipe for basic queso. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a medium pan on the stove. Once sausage is cooked through, deglaze pan with beer, and continue cooking until most of the liquid has evaporated. Mix sausage into queso and enjoy!
