Super Easy Cheesy Queso Dip

Super easy, cheesy queso dip. Sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next Game Day party.  

Some could say that I am a day behind with my game day food post. I would like to think I am a week ahead. I am giving you 6 days to go out and have everything on hand for this yummy queso dip.  Of course, this recipe is super simple and you probably have all of the ingredients already.  

If fact I might even suggest you doing a trial run before Sunday rolls around. I tried this out and ended up eating the whole bowl for lunch.  

I try to eat fairly healthy from real foods although I do enjoy an occasional boxed mix dessert or canned soup now and then.  However there are some things I just cannot do. One of which is Velveeta cheese. That stuff really grosses me out. I always get a bit sad when I see a recipe that looks super yummy only to realize one of the key ingredients is Velveeta. 

Now I cannot officially say this is a true Velveeta replacement since I don't really know what that stuff actually tastes like although Mr. J is convinced it does.  What I do know is this cheese sauce is super good.  I gobbled up the first serving so fast I had to get more before Mr. J can down to try it out for himself. 

If Nachos aren't your things, hot dogs and broccoli could be just the base for this cheesy sauce.
