Festive Holiday Tailgating With
Rotel & Velveeta’s Famous Queso Dip

It may be the holidays, but football season is also in full swing.  Looking for a fun way to combine the two?   How about Rotel & Velveeta’s Famous Queso Dip, dressed up a bit for holiday entertaining…

Just because it’s the holidays it doesn’t mean it can’t still be time for game day tailgating fun and food.  Are you looking for a quick and easy tailgating recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser?  You can’t go wrong with Velveeta & RO*TEL’s Famous Queso Dip.  And because it is the holidays, you can also dress it up in some fun and festive ways.

By simply adding some fun holiday colored tortilla chips, as well as a little extra splash of holiday color (and yummy flavor) with some chopped up tomatoes and cilantro, your game day treat can fit right in with your holiday decor.  By looking through your cabinets you can even find some fun and colorful ways to serve your Queso Dip.   Above I used a simple square white plate and a fun red and white mug to create a Christmas style serving platter.

Who says that a cake stand is only for dessert?  Add a ramekin full of Rotel-Velveeta’s Queso Dip and some red tortilla chips and you have a great way to serve this famous snack.

If your tailgate party includes kiddos, as mine always do, individual containers for their Rotel-Velveeta Queso Dip serves a few purposes.  Portion control, no fighting over who eats more and it eliminates that whole “double dipping” thing that kids can be guilty of.  And who doesn’t enjoy their own little bowl of Queso?

This really could not be easier to make.  By simply combining Velveeta and Rotel, you have a great snack that is ready in mere minutes.

It’s that easy!
