Okay friends, don’t laugh, but I thought this was a cute idea.
I made regular old queso and called it Pot of Gold Dip for St. Paddy’s Day. And my kids thought it was hysterical. Fun, right?! Whether you make this for your kids one night or take it to a St. Patrick’s Day party, just whip up basic queso, call it Pot of Gold Dip and you’re done. St. Paddy’s made easy over here :).
This recipe makes a big old batch of queso.
1 pound of breakfast sausage (I used Owen’s regular pork sausage…you can even omit this step and make your dip vegetarian)
1 (16 oz) package of Velveeta cheese
1 (10 oz) can of Rotel tomatoes
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown up your sausage until it’s crumbly and cooked through. Add your cooked and crumbly sausage to your slow cooker. Add in your Velveeta cheese (I cut mine into chunks to help it melt faster) and pour over your can of Rotel. Cover and cook on high at least an hour before you remove the lid and stir. Once the dip is nice and melted, turn heat to low or “keep warm” and continue to cook as you enjoy your dip straight out of the slow cooker.
I mean…it’s the basic queso recipe everyone knows and loves…just with a St. Patrick’s Day name. Because…it’s just more fun with a quirky name :).
