Next Sunday, eyes will be glued to the TV, watching THE big game of the year. Our bellies will be glued to all the tasty treats this all-American tradition entails. The Wine Sisterhood shared this almost-effortless queso dip recipe that is perfect to bring along to that game-day party.
1 bell pepper – chopped fine
1 onion – chopped fine
3 stalks celery – chopped fine
1 pound hamburger meat
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 18-ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 4-ounce can of diced green chile peppers, drained and rinsed
2 pounds American cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Step one: Open a bottle of wine, pour yourself a glass and sip. (Don’t forget! You can search for any of the Middle Sister Wines using the wine locator here. And remember, all of the wines featured in this post are available in the Middle Sister Online Wine Shop.)
Step two: Heat 1 tablespoon neutral oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan or dutch oven.
Step three: Add bell pepper, onion and celery, stir to combine. Saute vegetables for about 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add hamburger meat, stir to break up. Cook until brown. Add taco seasoning. Stir through until combined.
Step four: Add drained diced tomatoes and rinsed chile peppers. Stir through until combined.
Step five: Add American cheese in chunks and stir through to incorporate.
Serve with tortilla chips or large corn chips and enjoy! Keep a batch warm in a slow cooker for all-day enjoyment. Pair with a glass of Purple Cowboy Trail Boss Cabernet!
