January is my favorite time of the year because everyone is eating healthy and I’m over here saying, “What party food can we make for the playoff game tonight?”

Football. I’m talking football playoffs. And the intensity is insane.

Watching the game is all about the appetizers. I’m thinking of it as the appetizer playoff.

Which appetizers will prove themselves worth for the big game…the Super Bowl.

We’ve been known to only have appetizers as our meal and it makes us all extremely happy.Queso Blanco Dip - only 4 ingredients to creamy, restaurant quality dip appetizer. Can be made in the crockpot too! the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

In fact, maybe we’ll make 2018 an appetizer only year. All recipes on here will be appetizers. Anyone opposed?

All agreed, say “Cheese!”

If I’m doing a cheesy appetizer, it has to Mexican themed. Who want to join me in a cheesy induced coma?

Start off with some White American cheese. You can get it at the deli counter sliced. American is definitely the silkiest. Don’t substitute anything else.

If you’re tempted to use yellow American cheese instead, you’ll just have to call it something besides Queso Blanco. Queso Amarillo?

By the way, I’ve been using my Duolingo app to learn Spanish. It says that I’m 49% fluent in Spanish. It’s only taken me four months to get there. They don’t give away percentages lightly.

I’m starting to understand more and more. So when I hear Queso Blanco I actually hear “White Cheese“.  Awesome, right?

Next, add some Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles for some kick!Queso Blanco Dip - only 3 ingredients to creamy, restaurant quality dip. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

Next, just add a little cream to your desired consistency. I use about 1/3 cup but if you like it thinner use more.

If you’re someone who loves spices, by all means add some. I added a little cumin but to be totally honest, it doesn’t need it.
