Have you heard the news? There's an anticipated shortage of the much loved Velveeta cheese block!
Say it isn't so - and you're probably right. I think the reported shortage is only expected on the East Coast!
Why? A shortage right before the biggest dip day (Super Bowl Sunday)? Again, why? Dunno! But, great marketing!
I'm told we don't have to worry about a Velveeta block shortage here in the Midwest. But just in case, just for those of you who haven't made queso dip without the Velveeta staple, how about substituting a block of white American or Pepper Jack cheese? Works just as well.
Or here's a thought: try a real block of cheddar cheese with your favorite salsa in a small crockpot. Add about 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream to the mixture for a creamier option.
If you'd like to expand your dip repertoire, here are a couple of recipes friends have shared with me over the years. They've always scored touchdowns at our Super Bowl gatherings!
