Hamburger Queso Dip

This is the time of year when I switch gears from Cookies and Christmas Treats to Appetizers!

Every year, my family spends New Year’s Eve eating appetizers, playing games and having fun. It’s the last night to “pig out” before we start our New Year’s resolutions the next day. Is it healthy? Of course not, but it’s fun and we love the time we spend together that night. I’m grateful that we will get to be back in Arizona that night and am looking forward to that time with the fam.

Super Simple and Delicious

The recipe I’m sharing today is one we have at many Luna functions. It’s called Hamburger Queso, and it’s amazing!!! My cousin, Rene, is the one who is usually assigned this dish but it’s one we all have made for our functions and parties at home. It’s done in the Crock Pot which means it’s SUPER simple and is always a party favorite. It can be served with tortilla chips or Fritos. We make it a ton when we are enjoying Mexican food and when we do people usually put the queso on the tacos too!

If you are looking for a delicious and simple Appetizer to enjoy at some upcoming holiday functions, I definitely recommend this Hamburger Queso Dip. It’s SO good. 🙂

I must warn that this Queso is pretty addicting.

If you try it I know you’ll agree!
