We, as a family, are not huge sports fans. However, we do love the Indianapolis Colts, and my husband said to me the other week:
"Hey, babe, if the Colts go to the Super Bowl, let's have a Super Bowl party."
To which I responded, "Ok. Who do you want to invite?"
Blank stare. "Uh...."
Seriously. Our social life is a bit lacking in the midst of working second shift and raising kids.
Sadly, the Colts didn't make it to the Super Bowl, so no party-hosting for us.
However, this is a great dip to add to your repertoire of appetizers! After all, who doesn't love hot, cheesy dip while chatting with friends or watching a football game? For me, the Super Bowl has always been about the food!
RECIPE FOLLOWS AFTER THE JUMP! White Cheddar Queso Dip
Adapted from Annie's Eats
1 tbsp. canola oil
¼ cup onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
12 oz. white American cheese, shredded*
4 oz. Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/4-2/3 cup milk
1 tomato, seeded and finely diced
2 tbsp. cilantro, minced
*White American cheese can be found at the deli counter in most grocery stores.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and jalapeño to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add both of the shredded cheeses and ¼ cup of the milk. Whisk or stir until completely melted. Mix in the tomato and cilantro, and add additional milk gradually as necessary to achieve desired consistency. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl and serve immediately with tortilla chips.
