Looking for some delicious game day snacks for the upcoming big game? This Philly Cheese Steak Queso Dip is one that you do not want to miss.
Let’s be completely clear. I look forward to Super Bowl Sunday for one reason and one reason only. The game day food!!!
I’m sure that doesn’t surprise you one single bit given the amount of recipes I share here. The past month every Sunday afternoon there has been a game playing. I only know this because I walked through the room to get to the kitchen about 8 times each game.
No, not to eat. I just get a little stir crazy when I don’t have anything to do. So, I get up and wander and see what is in the fridge, what is in the cupboards, maybe do some dishes, and then possible bake something. All while the boys are in the background cheering on their teams.
It will be a food fest for sure!
One thing that is always a given is some sort of cheese dip. It is a battle of the wills when anything like this is around.
It is me against the dip. I want to eat it all. My pants tell me to ration my servings. Any guesses who wins every time?
A few months ago, my husband kept saying we needed to create another queso dip since we all loved this Chicken Fajita Queso Dip so much. His new idea was Philly Cheese Steak version.
So, this week I picked up the ingredients and put it together for him. It made my kitchen smell so amazing to have all of this simmering together.
Tips to make a Philly Cheese Steak Queso Dip:
Sauté some onions and peppers in some olive oil. You can use whatever color peppers you like, but I used a mixture of red and green peppers for some color.
After the veggies were soft, add the roast beef and green chilies. When everything was all warm and sizzling, set it aside.
Next you will melt down the Velveeta cheese. By adding a little bit of milk, it helps make it a little bit more creamy for dipping. If you want it even creamier, feel free to add a little bit more than I did. Just remember the juices from the meat and peppers will get stirred in too.
After the cheese melted down, stir in the meat and peppers mixture.
Dinner Tip: You could also serve this as a meal by placing the meat mixture on buns and just topping with the melted cheese.
For dipping though, you will stir everything together.
I also baked up a baguette loaf to serve with the dip. The little crusty bread slices completed the cheese steak flavor perfectly. I think the next time I should double the recipe though. My family finished this off in no time at all.
This easy queso dip got thumbs up from everyone around the table. My husband has done it again!!!
