This is one of those classic pot luck recipes, one everyone has had and one that everyone has probably made. Mine is just a bit different because instead of just Velveeta and salsa it adds the fresh sauteed onion and pepper which I think really enhances both the flavor AND texture of the Queso!
This is another one I’ve been eating as long as I can remember! I’m not sure where it originated from, my Mom? My Grandma? my Great Aunt? all I know is it doesn’t feel like the holiday’s without a batch of this. This batch makes a ton and since my husband doesn’t like it I’ve been known to eat almost a whole batch myself over a weekend! Now the kids help me out.
