RO*TEL and VELVEETA :: A Winning Combination :: Margarita Shrimp Queso
But not just any dip, VELVEETA and RO*TEL to be precise. Two ingredients synonymous with game day, you just can’t imagine game day without them. Spicy, creamy and convenient, you can be fist-pumping for your favorite team with one first and dipping your chips with the other. Football might not make a whole lot of sense to me, but I know that game day is always a good time, with good friends, family and as always – amazing food. This is how we celebrate our game day, with traditional VELVEETA and RO*TEL, otherwise known as Queso. Cook it up for a crowd and jazz it up (add in margarita-marinated shrimp like I did) and have a game day fiesta! No matter how to slice it, VELVEETA and RO*TEL make game day festive.
