Don’t forget that Sunday is Superbowl Sunday! It’s the last tailgate/football day of the season. It will be months before we see a lot of this food again. It’s also your last chance to wow your friends with a great dish.
If you are still debating what to take on Sunday, maybe you should try Queso Grande! Developed and adjusted over probably 20 football seasons, this is hands down the best darn queso you’ll ever find.
5 pound block processed cheese, like Velveeta
1 pound sausage (mild or hot)
1 medium onion
1 can black olives
1 can tomatoes and green chiles
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Hot pepper sauce, to taste
Fresh or canned jalapeños, to taste
Pour can of tomatoes and green chilis and chicken broth into slow cooker and turn it to high or medium high. Chunk up cheese and place in cooker.
Brown sausage in skillet, then add onion and continue cooking until onion clarifies. If sausage was fatty, pour off some grease, and then add sausage and onion to slow cooker.
Slice or chunk up olives and add to slow cooker. Mix in spices.
Reduce heat to medium and heat through, stirring occasionally. Taste to ensure it is correctly spiced for your family and adjust seasoning. Once mixture is fully melted, be sure to turn cooker to low so cheese won’t stick or scorch.
Tips: This dish is a party favorite with tortilla chips and it makes terrific tortilla rollup filling or quesadilla filling. Cooking it in a slow cooker makes it easily portable for transporting to parties.
