Hi guys! I’m on day three of summer vacation with the Tall Boy and Doodle. We definitely needed some time away, and I have to admit, it’s been really nice to disconnect for awhile – no Facebook, no Twitter, no social media of any kind…
I’ve sort of forgotten how easy-going and stress-free things could be without my phone or e-mail lighting up constantly with some new notification…although, I’m a little nervous to check my inbox when I get home…
In the meantime, Meghan is here today to share an awesome recipe with you. Meghan blogs over at The Tasty Fork, and she’s kind of like my blogging soul-mate. First: she loves dip recipes just about as much as I do. Second: she loves to grill. And third: she makes a mean taco. Need I say more? 😉
So, without further ado…here’s Meghan!
White Queso Guacamole has everything I love in a dip! Melty cheese, check! Creamy guacamole, check! Spicy pico de gallo, check! All of that scooped on to a chip and I’m a happy camper. This queso dip recipe is one of my favorites and it’s made all the time during football season.
I’m Meghan and I blog over at The Tasty Fork. Ashley asked me to guest post for her while she’s having a fun family vacation and I instantly knew what I needed to share on Kitchen Meets Girl. Ashley & I have been blogging buddies for awhile and we both have same love for Mexican food. Especially spicy Mexican food! The first Ashley recipe I ever made was her Jalapeno Popper Turkey Chili. AMAZING!!!
Another thing Ashley & I have in common is we both love game day food! Can you believe football season is just a month away??!! Tailgating food is one of my favorite recipe categories. We usually have friends over every weekend to watch football, so I have pressure to create delicious food for all of our guests. White Queso Guacamole Dip was created by accident. I had all three elements of the dip on my plate. The cheese was spreading all over my plate, so I was scooping everything onto tortilla chips. It wasn’t until I was done eating that I realized what my next queso dip recipe had to be. (It was one of those light bulb moments!)
White Queso Gaucamole Dip is very easy to make. First, make a guacamole. I like my avocados mashed with tomatoes, garlic, lime juice and cilantro. Next you’ll make the white cheddar cheese sauce. It’s your basic cheese sauce but I like to add in jalapenos for some heat. The final step is chopping up tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and cilantro for the pico de gallo.
This queso dip recipe is layered. Guacamole is the bottom layer, ladle the cheese sauce over the guac, then top if off with the pico de gallo. I like to serve this dip in individual bowls. That way I don’t have to share with anyone.
If you’re a fan of queso dip and guacamole, you must try this recipe!! It’s perfect snack for game day since everyone loves spicy cheese sauce and guacamole. If you’re like me and love game day recipes, be sure to check out a series I’m hosting over at Southern Mom Cooks. The Ultimate Tailgating Party is all about tailgating recipes and giveaways. You can see my new tailgating recipes every Sunday. Starting August 4th, I’ll be hosting my first tailgating giveaway from Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I hope you’ll come by and check it out!
