A simple Bean and Cheese Queso recipe featuring Bush’s Chili Beans.
I recently realized I do everything a bit backwards on my blog. While everyone has been posting their favorite super bowl recipes, I wait until the day after to share what I brought instead of what I would bring. I must be such a disappointment to those of you who plan ahead and scour the internet for the current trends.
I’m apparently trendless around here… only participating once things seem to be well out the door. This is not on purpose at all… it’s just how my life works. I have no need for a house full of Super Bowl appetizers unless I’m actually going someplace that requires appetizers. Just like you probably won’t see a bunch of Valentine’s recipes around here until after our big Valentine’s dinner. The last thing my thighs need is to be tempted by some of my favorite foods, simply to provide SEO related content for you.
With that said, here’s something to bookmark (or I guess Pin is what we do now, right?) for NEXT year and your Super Bowl celebration. Bush’s Chili Bean Cheese Queso using Bush’s Kidney or Chili Beans. I made this for a Super Bowl party we went to last night, and case in point… part of it was gone before we even left the house. I have no restraint, whatsoever.
This isn’t your traditional type of queso recipe. Don’t get me wrong…it’s incredibly cheesy. But the Chili Beans are the real star of the show.
