Cheese and Queso?

Every Christmas and New Year season I have to have my queso, at least once, but usually twice! This is something everyone seems to have in San Antonio, but when in North Carolina, not so much. When I make chips and queso, I remember what one of Luke's nurses used to say. It was the holidays and she would say, "I'll bring the cheese and queso!" and Luke, driven crazy finally said, "You know, queso is the same thing as cheese..So what you're really saying is, 'I'll bring the cheese and cheese.' It's 'chips and queso!' " To which she said, "oh" with a nervous laugh. So anyway, here's the easiest recipe you'll ever have, and you probably already know it, but just in case you don't.

1 big block of velveeta cheese
1 can rotel (I choose mild)
1 lb. breakfast sausage

Brown sausage into little pieces. Cube velveeta and put in the crockpot; add the sausage and can of rotel (undrained). Heat on high for 1 hour, then turn to warm for serving. Stir occasionally or the sides will burn.

Serve with chips, not cheese...

Lol, it's so ironic how widespread that recipe is. Even though I now essentially live in Mexico, that is still the ONLY queso recipe I know...and I learned how to make it when I lived in Lubbock ;)

I hope you and the family had a wonderful Christmas and New Years Gab! Love you!
