Queso Dip

The Super Bowl is this weekend and while we'll have the game on in our house, I probably could care less about the outcome. I don't mind watching football but I am more of a baseball kind of gal. But having a nice spread of snacks, now that's a must!

I love a good dip, especially a cheesy dip like queso. It can be pretty darn addicting and I could make a meal out of it if I don't control my portion size.

What I like best about this recipe is the versatility.  You can add in a little meat for something more hearty. I can also throw it in the oven and let the dip come together while I attend to other tasks.  You could certainly adapt it to the slow cooker as well.

If you're in need of a quick last minute appetizer for Sunday, add this easy dip to your menu!

Queso Dip

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 cups grated cheese (I used a combo of cheddar & Monterey jack)
10 oz. can diced tomatoes w/chiles
3/4 cup salsa

In a one quart casserole dish combine all ingredients together. Cover with a lid or foil and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until creamy and heated through. I recommend stirring at least once or twice during cooking time.

Remove from oven. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
