Celebrate Cinco de Mayo (or ANY day) with this Mexican Queso Fundido .. it’s an easy to make oooey, gooey cheesy dip that is a crowd pleaser from the word GO!
Do you like Mexican food as much as I do? Is that even possible? In this house, Mexican food gets made all the time. Keep in mind, neither me or Big Scary Mike are of any Hispanic descent but trust me, these two Irish people can put a killing on a bowl of chips and salsa!
Besides, you need something to soak up all those margaritas!
PS.. If you would like to make this non-alcoholic, double up on your favorite salsa instead of using the lager. It will taste amazing!!
Psst… Now that we are friends, don’t you think we should spend some more time together? That’s what besties do, right? Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest .. and yup, even Instagram!
