Aahhh hello my fellow gastronomes! I know it has been a while since I posted.
Between the holidays, and medical issues, I have been out of commission for all most a month!
I do have some blogger friends that have stepped up to help out with some guest posts, so you will have some great stuff to read and make while you are waiting for me to get back on track.
But on to business...
It is football time!
My whole house, along with many of my friends houses, is revolving around football!!
It has become a bit of an obsession, I will admit.
But there is something about chanting your team name over and over with a complete stranger, while you drink beer with gaudy jewelry, make up, and strange colored hair.
It is a bonding moment
when I started thinking about what to make for some football nibbles, I was taken back to my childhood years and the HUGE football parties my family would have.
There would be a ton of beer, sodas, food, and fun, every weekend.
It was awesome!!
I knew my first dish would have to be an homage to my mother.
Like I have said in the past, she wasn't really much of a cook (love you Mom), but there are certain dishes that stick out in my mind. Ones that she made for get togethers that just bring back memories so vividly for me.
Plus this was one of her most requested dips.
Bad for you I know.
But oh so oooey goooey good!!!
1 (15 ounce) can of chili with no beans (I used hot but the spice level is up to you)
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can of diced tomatoes with *chipotle peppers
2 (7 ounce) cans of diced green chilis
1 (32 ounce) block of regular Velveeta cheese, cubed
In a large skillet, heat the chili, tomatoes, and green chilis over medium heat. Add the cubed cheese and stir until melty and ooey gooey. Adjust seasoning.
Poor into a bowl, and serve with your favorite chips.
* If you can't find them use tomatoes with green chilis, or add a chopped chipotle pepper with some of the sauce
