5 Ways to Upgrade Your Queso
Speaking of dips, nothing says football season quite like queso! Here are 5 easy ways to take that cheesy dip up a notch:
- Stir in minced (seeded) jalapeño and top with crumbled bacon or chorizo.
- Mix in some cooked, diced chicken and salsa verde, and top with pico de gallo.
- Add some chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (or just some of the sauce), and top with chopped mango.
- Mix in some cooked ground beef and black or pinto beans and top with guacamole and a Mexican hot sauce.
- Stir in some salsa (we recommend one of our Nom Nom Salsas) and top with fresh cilantro.
Spice it Up
In the mood to make-it-yourself? Here are some of our favorite unique, new recipes for game day (or any gathering where you need to feed hungry friends and family). Serve up a plate of sweet potato totchos (yes, tater tot nachos, and yes, they’re amazing), or delight carnivores and vegetarians alike with buffalo cauliflower bites. We also have a recipe for potato skins with creamy guacamole and chicken vindaloo—an easy way to impress your guests!
Complete your party spread with an ice cold beer like Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing IPA or some refreshingly crisp Angry Orchard Cider Rosé. For something a little different, try our new recipe for Mango Turmeric Margaritas. We also have plenty of cocktail (and mocktail) ideas on our Seasonal Sips page.
