Hot quest dip

Is it just me or is dip for dinner the best idea ever? When you think about it, it makes sense on so many levels. Maybe the game just went into triple overtime and you can’t leave the screen to go cook a meal, maybe you forgot to take the meat out of the freezer, skipped the market on the way home from work, can’t face any more dishes to wash…or maybe you just like dip…a lot.  This is a judgement free zone here at tvfgi, it’s all good.

So enough chit chat, pop open a big bag of chips and let’s get to those 15 excuses to have hot cheesy dip for dinner~

      That is a version of the queso dip, further down in the post Nancy, here: https://www.recipetineats.com/queso-dip-mexican-cheese-dip/ The one in the photo is made with yellow cheddar and extra cilantro.
