“We always serve queso at our family gatherings, especially during football season! It's the perfect tailgate dish! Gig'em Aggies!” - Arena Blake of The Nerd's Wife
Brown the pork sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Set aside. Drain the Rotel and heat the butter on medium-high heat until melted. Add the Rotel and sauté for about 2 minutes until fragrant. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, mix the cheese and ¼ cup of milk until the cheese is melted, stirring constantly. Add the Rotel and sausage to the saucepan. Mix well. Gradually stir in milk until the queso reaches desired consistency. Serve immediately with tortilla chips for dipping.
Tips for stress-free home entertaining:
For me, the key is to be prepared. I like to keep several options for dinner and dessert on hand, just in case company arrives unannounced. My freezer is stocked with pies-in-a-jar, frozen cookie dough, and enchiladas I can pop right into the oven.
Kitchen advice for other moms and dads:
Find recipes to serve that are easy to prep in advance, but still unique and fun! I served Monkey Cupcakes at my niece’s birthday party – I baked the cupcakes and made the monkey faces in advance, and they lasted several days frozen. The cupcakes were so fun and cute – all the kids loved them!
