Adapted from Green Bay Packers Cheddar-Beer Queso by Stiletto Sports
In our family, showing some love for professional football is not unusual. On the contrary, it is celebrated. The guys are fans of the New England Patriots, Danielle is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and I am a proud Cheesehead! I know that in some families everyone has the same rooting interest, but believe me, it is much more exciting to be pitted against each other like we are several times a year. When our teams play one another, there is usually a pretty good amount of trash-talking that goes on. Sometimes this talking is backed up with a friendly bet.
I have special recipes for each team and this is the one for my team. It is quick and easy to make, tastes great, and after you mix it all together, the queso can be poured into a small crock pot to keep it warm. Enjoy!
16 oz. package Velveeta, diced
10 oz. can diced tomatoes with chiles, drained
1/2 cup Wisconsin beer
1 cup Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar, shredded
1. In a pan over medium-low heat, melt Velveeta.
2. Add the tomatoes and stir.
3. Add the beer and stir.
4. Add the sharp cheddar and mix thoroughly. Add more beer if necessary to make a smooth queso.
5. Serve with big, fat bready pretzels to soak up all the gooey cheese.
*If you are concerned about the amount of fat in this recipe (it is substantial), I would suggest that you try to fit some veggies into your tailgating menu.
