Easy RO*TEL Queso Dip & $100 Visa Giveaway

This post is brought to you by ConAgra Foods and Kraft Foods and BlogHer.

Easy Ro*Tel Queso Dip & Giveaway | My Life as a Mrs

Tis’ the season for all things fall… including FOOTBALL! Now, one thing you will know about me is that I honestly could not care less about the actual football game, but I DO love a great football party because of the plethora of munchies that go along with it.

Finger foods are my all-time favorite and football games and finger foods go hand in hand. Am I right? (That’s a rhetorical question)

Fall is not only a time for football but also a time for nostalgia. It’s the time of year that gets me thinking about all of my favorite memories from childhood. When you combine this nostalgia with football, my brain immediately thinks of none other than the famous queso dip with creamy VELVEETA® & RO*TEL® zesty tomatoes and chilies! My mom has been making the deliciously simple dip since I was a kid, and I’ve carried on the tradition in my own home! I mean hello, I was born loving all things cheesy and spicy, after all! This dip is my kryptonite, as in I have ZERO self control around it! 😉

Easy Ro*Tel Queso Dip & Giveaway | My Life as a Mrs The key to throwing an awesome game day party is having a good variety of delicious eats for your guests! But how do you work out the logistics of that without wanting to pull your hair out?

Tip #1: Keep it simple! Think of a mix of things that you can make ahead (Veggie Tray with homemade Blue Cheese and/or Ranch Dressing), throw in the Crock pot (Cocktail Meatballs), carry-out from your favorite takeout restaurant (a big order of buffalo wings), and simple dips to throw together  (This easy 2-ingredient Zesty Queso dip)!

Tip #2:  Plan ahead. Break up tasks for different days so the actual game day isn’t overwhelming. I like to do my grocery shopping 2 days before an event and then prep or make anything that holds well in the refrigerator the day before (like cutting up the veggies and making the dressings, for instance). I also like to set out the trays and platters that I will be using and label them with Post-it notes.

Tip #3: Make a schedule. I find that if I write out a schedule for the day of the party, it helps keeps me on track to get all the food out on the table when guests arrive (and ensures that my pregnancy brain doesn’t forget anything!).

The next time you have friends over for Game Day, don’t forget to pick up some VELVEETA & RO*TEL diced tomatoes with green chilies and make this SIMPLE dip that will have your guests scraping the bowl clean!

Just 2 ingredients: chop, pour, microwave, stir and serve! Seriously, it doesn’t get easier than that!

Another cool fact (you may have seen the commercials on tv!) is that the VELVEETA and RO*TEL Quesobago is making a cross country road trip and stopping at some of the biggest football rivalry games, offering samples of their famous Queso dip! You can find their tour schedule here along with some other Queso recipes featuring these 2 simple ingredients! If that wasn’t enough, you could also enter for a chance to win a party featuring the awesome Quesobago! Yes, Please! November 30th, it will be making a stop in my home state for the mega-rival game between University of Florida & Florida State! Look out Gainesville! Queso is coming your way! 🙂
