So the big game is coming and every weekend I like to prepare yummy snacks to enjoy while its on. Our family loves to watch football, so gathering around the TV is my favorite time for us all to bond and spend time together. As much as I like to put out the classics like chicken wings, mini sandwiches and pizza, another family favorite is when I make Queso For All with Velveeta Cheese and Ro*Tel tomatoes.

Its a zesty, creamy mix and the flavor fuses perfectly together like peanut butter and jelly. When paired with corn chips, it makes for the perfect Sunday afternoon game time snack that can be passed around to the whole family. It doesnt stop there either – try roasting some cut up potatoes and smothering them in cheesy goodness for a delicious dinner side. Making Velveeta / Ro*Tel queso dip is so easy, anybody can do it. All you need are the 2 ingredients and a saucepan to melt it in. I start by melting the cheese, and I like to cube it up so it melts evenly.

Once you have a nice consistency, then I add an entire can of un-drained Ro*Tel tomatoes and mix it in. I continue to stir and keep it on a low heat for an extra few minutes until its perfectly creamy…. And serve!

While game time is my favorite time to make this creamy delicious queso dip, I don’t limit myself. After all, football season only lasts a few months! I like to also make this for social gatherings, family barbeques in the summer and birthday parties. I guarantee that this will be a crowd pleaser for even your most discerning guests!

One of my favorite quick and simple eats is the grilled cheese sandwich – pair it with a warm & hearty soup and you’ve got comfort food in a matter of minutes. Since this week has been filled with lots of heavy, feast worthy eating its been nice to have a lighter option on the off days. I found these Campbells Slow Kettle Style Soups when I was picking up a few things at Walmart this week.

I always like to pair my soups with a grilled cheese because this sandwich is alot like a little black dress – it’s a classic that can be dressed up as easily as it can be dressed down. I’ve made it with plain ol cheap sandwich bread and I’ve also used gourmet sourdough, as well as a range of different cheeses from american to smoked gouda. Depending on what you use, you can make it your own!

As for my soup, I like to have something hearty and easy to prepare at lunch time – leaves me time to get back to the important things! Campbells Slow Kettle Style Soups is one of my new favorites because its full of flavor and tastes like grandma made it.

When I make a grilled cheese, I usually use whatever I have. In this case, I used some smoked gouda that I had leftover from Christmas and sliced it thin.

In a frying pan, melt about 1 tablespoon of butter  on med-high and make sure it coats the bottom well. Place both slices of bread down on the hot surface, and add the cheese to one side, or both if you like it extra cheesy. Let it sit for about a minute, but keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn. I use a spatula to peek underneath to check how browned it looks.

Once the surface of the bread is golden, put the slices of bread together and flip it. Your grilled cheese is almost done! If the cheese isn’t melted through, just keep flipping it every 10 seconds until it is.

In the meantime, on a separate burner, I warm up some delicious Campbells Slow Kettle Soup on medium until its hot. I always feel like prepared soup  turns out better when prepared on the stovetop, so I always try to avoid the microwave whenever possible.

Always a crowd pleasing favorite are the Asian Inspired party food. I love them because you don’t need utensils to eat them, and you can east them standing up with a small plate and napkin – perfect for gatherings when there’s lots of people and limited seating.

I decided to get some frozen Tai Pei egg rolls and spring rolls from the freezer section at Walmart for my upcoming gathering. I love ‘em because not only are they as good as anything that’s considered authentic Asian food, they are extremely budget-friendly! At no more than 5$ per box, I was able to stock up and have a good hearty supply for the party.

As you can see, there’s a lot of other options besides egg rolls and spring rolls, but I stuck with the spring rolls because they’re so easy to eat. I chose not to make the included sauce (even though it’s awesome!) instead, I went with my authentic home made peanut sauce. This sauce goes really well over pork won tons too!

I started out with:

  • 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 tbspn sesame Oil
  • 4 tbspn soy sauce
  • 6 tbspn Water
  • 2 tsp Ground ginger
  • Sesame seeds for garnish

In a small saucepan, combine all the ingredients and heat to a boil while stirring constantly. Keep stirring until it’s completely smooth! Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top for garnish and serve in a bowl next to the egg rolls.
