As good as a walk-off home run

We're big sports fans 'round these parts.

The Brewers's home opener was Friday, and with the exception to a GREAT end to that first home game, their performance has um, left something to be desired. (What the HELL, Suppan?!?) The first home series was against the Cubbies, and we looove the Cubs/Brewers rivalry.

I whipped up a little gametime snack on Friday, in honor of the festivities. You know me...its RE-HE-HE-LY easy, or I wouldn't make it at all.


cheese


First, cube up a pound of Velveeta cheese.


tomatoes


Add a can of Red Gold diced tomatoes with green chiles.


dip


Microwave it in two minute intervals, stirring in between, until its a bowl of molten cheesy goodness.

Serve with tortilla chips, bagel chips or pretzel rods, and your beer of choice.

This cost me about $5 to make, as compared with $3.89 for a 12 oz jar of the premade stuff. (I ended up with about 3x as much.)

Good luck keeping your four-year-old's fingers out of the bowl. I swear he would have licked it if I'd have let him.

Yummy! I made this recently for the first time in years. It's so good.

maggie said...

Nummy, nummy, nummy! I've had it made with Rotell tomatoes and even a little hot Italian sausage thrown in. No matter what, that stuff is just yummy. We could even watch the games together, except I'm on the other team. We'd play nice, though, you and I, no?

You can NEVER go wrong with velveeta cheese!

Just Another SAHM said...

The hubs adores this dip & complains that I do not make enough 'velveeta based foods'. lol

Sorry, but I have to end with...Go Cards! ;)

NateAndJakesMom said...

Oh my gosh - I think I just gained 10 pounds thinking of eating that!! YUMMY!

Kim H. said...

Oooh, that dip looks good -- I'm sure my kids would devour it. I gotta go get my Red Gold coupons. Thank you Mr. Red Gold tomato company!

And yes, we love the Cubs/Brewers rivalry too -- kinda like the Bears/Packers. If you're a good ole midwesterner, you can't help but love all those teams! :)

Hugs!

Jerri - Simply Sweet Home said...

Looks good! Makes me wish I had a block of Velveeta in the fridge.

Dr Zibbs said...

Yummm. Looks good.

Michelle said...

Mmm, sounds yum! I could really go for some of this about now. I'm hungry and trying to stay out of the kitchen... so going through the TMTT posts is not the best idea I don't think ;)

winelush said...

I'm late, but since I'm from Milwaukee I've got to add GO BREWERS!

Leighann said...

I have velveeta about once a year (Super Bowl). Why is it so good? It's not like it's real cheese. But it's irresistible!

We melt velveeta with vegetarian chili and dip corn chips. Oh, yum!

(Maybe I'll have it TWO times this year! Or try your Queso dip.)

Karen said...

If only Velveeta weren't bad for my hips....

Megan said...

Go Cubs Go! Sorry been a Cubbbie fan since birth. Your dip looks so yummy and I think I may even be able to pull this one off.

Jenny said...
