Italian Queso is oh so Delizioso!!! I made this for our Super Bowl party and it was a BIG hit. Good thing I made this awesome spin on traditional Queso cause the game was borrringgg!! At least the food was super good!
Italian Queso is Super Easy!
The inspiration for this dip came from a recipe I found on Pinterest from the blog Buns In My Oven. As usual, I changed it up adding some pickled Pepperoncini peppers, capers, and different kinds of cheese.
Preheat to oven to 350o Cut Velveeta cheese into cubes and mix in a medium mixing bowl with grated pepper jack cheese.
Chop all veggies and add to cheeses and rest of ingredients. Mix until everything is incorporated.
Scoop bowl mixture into oil sprayed cast iron skillet. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden and melted.
Serve with pita chips, tortillas, sliced bell peppers, cauliflower slices, broccoli, celery. Enjoy!
Done in 30 minutes
This savory Italian Queso dip would also be really good baked with chicken; replacing the Velveeta with cream cheese, and adding it to pasta. Or as a filling for a scooped-out bowl of french bread baked. Yummmmmm!
