This cheese dip is seriously the best queso type dip I’ve ever had. It comes from my brother Michael, who is amazing in lots of ways, but particularly in the kitchen. He is required to make this every time the family gets together. And my husband asks for it other times too.
But, beware: this is addictive! It is perfect for game day or whenever you have a bunch of people coming over, because you will want to eat it all by yourself (my husband has tried and it’s not a good idea). It would be perfect for a Super Bowl party. Which, I have to tell you, my family doesn’t get to much into football and I didn’t even realize until yesterday that the Superbowl was this week. I knew it was happening, and even knew which teams are playing, I just didn’t know it was so soon. I cannot even tell you how grateful I have been over the years that I married a man that cares as much about football as I do.
So, we won’t be watching football this sunday, but we will be eating some delicious food. Like this dip, and maybe something cream-cheesy like these Cheesecake Bites or this amazing Cream Cheese Ball, and something salty like these fancy pretzels or these chocolate peanut butter pretzels, and some sort of fun drink like this.
- 1 package Velveeta
- 1 pound pork sausage
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1 can green chiles
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 1/2 cups salsa
- Chop vegetables and heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add the mushrooms and bell pepper. Cook until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are soft. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
- In the same skillet, brown sausage. Drain and discard grease from sausage.
- Put the sautéed vegetables back in the skillet with the sausage. Add the green chiles and the rinsed beans. Stir and cook until heated through (it should smell fantastic at this point!).
- Cut the Velveeta into cubes and place in a crockpot.
- Pour the sausage and vegetable mixture over the cheese. Add salsa over top.
- Turn the crockpot on low. Give it a good stir. Cook until it is the cheese is melted, stirring every 20 minutes or so.
You can also make this in the microwave or completely on the stovetop. The crockpot just makes an easy way to keep it warm if you have people grazing for awhile.
