Pan of Oil

Um, when you think of the Super Bowl you immediately think of food.  Sorry football. That’s important and all.  But let’s be honest.  When it comes to the Super Bowl, it’s the food that grabs people.  Or maybe that’s just me.

Now y’all know that I’m a fan of football, minus the Patriots.  The Rams got their arses kicked in a low scoring game.  It was painful.

But in all of the hoopla of the Super Bowl, I found a fabulous recipe for a queso & chorizo dip.  I’m sorry, anything with cheese and chorizo… sign me up!

Side note:  I would follow this recipe completely but with one change… I would bake the cheese as directed, then when pulling it from the oven I would give it a good stir.  After that, I would pour the cheesy goodness into a crock pot, set on low, so that the cheese is kept at a melty temperature.  Top it with all of the lovely, very decadent toppings and you’re good to go!

Loaded Queso Fundido (recipe care of not sure who???)

INGREDIENTS:  1 lb pepper jack cheese (shredded), 1 lb American cheese (shredded), 1 chipotle pepper in adobe sauce (finely chopped) plus  1 tbsp sauce, crumbled cooked fresh chorizo, sliced scallions, chopped tomatoes, sliced jalapeño chiles, sliced radishes, and fresh cilantro leaves for toppings, tortilla chips for dipping

DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In large bowl, mix cheeses with chipotle and adobe sauce.  Transfer to medium cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet; spread in even layer.  Bake until cheeses melt, bubble, and brown in spots, 15 to 20 minutes.  Garnish with toppings.
