Happy Friday, everyone! How great has this short week been? I always love a Monday holiday that gets you one day closer to the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, who’s headed out to cheer on their favorite team tomorrow? College football is in full swing and I’ve teamed up with Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q and concocted a super delicious dip that you’re gonna want to make for your next tailgate party.
Stubb’s sauces, marinades and rubs are a great way to add flavor to all kinds of grilled meats and vegetables (and in this case, dips) for tailgates and game day get togethers. For today’s recipe, I’m using Stubb’s Green Chile Anytime Sauce, which is a flavorful mix of Hatch green chilies, garlic and lime that gives this Queso dip a true Southwest kick.
If you’ve never made your own Queso before, get ready folks, you’re going to be making this for just about every party you have.
Stubb’s Green Chili Anytime Sauce QuesoSERVES a crowd PrintDownload
- about 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 cup chopped, sweet Vidalia onion
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3 cups of grated Monterrey cheese. Grate from the block, no pre-shredded please.
- 1/4 cup whipping cream
- 1/3-1/2 cup of Stubb's Green Chili Anytime Sauce
- Heat up the olive oil over medium heat in a stock pot. Cook until it's soft and begins to caramelize.
- Add the tablespoon of flour to the onion and cook for about a minute or so. Add the milk and stir well. Let the mixture cook for a couple minutes and when it starts to thicken, add in 1/3 cup of Green Chili Anytime Sauce. Stir well.
- Next add in the cheese. Stir until it's all melted and gooey. Try the dip at this point, if you want more heat or it's too thick, add in the rest of the chili sauce.
- Finish with a little whipping cream for extra decadence and serve pipping hot with your favorite tortilla chips.
- **To keep it warm, serve it out of a small crock pot or keep it over a flame so that it doesn't get cold.
- Garnish with jalapeños, chopped red onion, cilantro and sliced red chills if you'd like.
