Queso Fundido

Are you ready for the Super Bowl?  It’s always a big event in our house!  I’m actually looking forward to the game this year because my 8 year old son is excited about it.  It’s the first year that he’s actually watched games and paid attention to them.  I think being a ball boy for my husband’s high school football team has helped.  And I’m pretty sure he knows more about football than I do now!

Normally my favorite part of the Super Bowl is all the food.  We usually have a bunch of appetizers and desserts.  I saw this recipe on Pioneer Woman’s blog and knew I had to try it.  This recipe combines a lot of cheese, sausage, and some veggies.  What more could you want?  You should try this…it will not disappoint!  My husband really isn’t a fan of dips, but he ate this one up and said it tasted like pizza topping.  Yum!

Who are you rooting for tonight?  We have relatives who live in Seattle so they sent my kids some Seattle shirts. Living in Indiana though, we still root for Peyton Manning.  So we’re kind of undecided here.  What about you?

Queso Fundido

Ingredients:
1/2 pound hot breakfast sausage (I used Bob Evans)
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 pound fresh mozarella, shredded
10 ounce queso fresco, crumbled
Sprinkle of cumin, optional
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
Tortilla chips for eating

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a large skillet, cook the sausage until brown. Remove from skillet and drain on a paper towel.  Add the onions and bell peppers to the skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the veggies are soft and golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. You can bake this in an iron skillet or a baking dish.  In your dish of choice, layer 1/3 of the cheeses, half the sausage, then another third of the cheese. Now add the onion and bell pepper veggie mixture.  Add almost all of the remaining cheese, the rest of the sausage, then whatever cheese you have left. Sprinkle the top very lightly with cumin if you want a little extra kick.

4. Place into the oven bake for about 10 minutes or until cheeses are melted.

5. Remove from the oven, top with the diced tomatoes, and it’s ready to eat!

6. Enjoy!!!
