Super Easy Two-Ingredient Queso Guests Will Cheer For

By  | Last Updated:  

With the Super Bowl only a few weeks away, I am getting excited to host a football themed party at our house. Since we have several events happening this month, I am sticking with simple ideas for our football bash. I have learned that when the game is on, supplying filling and easy-to-eat food is a sure win with our party guests. Today’s recipe is part of a sponsored post previously written by me on behalf of Ro*Tel & Velveeta — and it will have you cheering because it’s so easy to create!

This two-ingredient queso is zesty, creamy and easy — a crowd pleaser and perfect if you’re hosting a last minute get together! It can easily turn into a staple for any occasion’s entertainment spread, especially upcoming football parties and tailgating events.

To make the queso, all you need to do is combine a can of Ro*Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies with a cubed 16-ounce block of Velveeta. Stick it in the microwave for about five minutes, stirring about half-way through.

You need Velveeta to make this simple two-ingredient queso for your next football bash.

If you have Ro*tel Tomato Dip, you're halfway to creating this simple, delicious two-ingredient queso.

You can also easily add in fresh ingredients to make it your own. I love the idea of creating a queso bar: start with your queso and then provide bowls of mix-ins like beans, rice, beef or chicken, fresh cilantro, onions, peppers and tomatoes so that guests can customize their dip.

This two-ingredient queso uses Ro*tel tomato dip and Velveeta to make this quick, delicious dip.

I added black beans to ours and then topped the bowl with fresh tomatoes and cilantro.

Delicious two-ingredient queso, topped with black beans, cilantro, and fresh tomato. Perfect party snack!

For our upcoming football party, I decided chicken quesadillas were on the menu. They’re simple and quick to make and the queso adds a real pop of flavor.

Use the two-ingredient queso as a topping for your quesadillas.

You could even make these quesadillas on an electric griddle so you could do several at once.

Quick, delicious game-day quesadillas.

This makes it easy when you have a pile of hungry guests in your home that you’re quickly trying to prepare a meal for. Or if you’re working during commercial breaks. 😉
