“You’re going to get me kicked off the internet for this.”
Not the first time I’ve said those words to Jason… probably won’t be the last, either.
But he has a point. There is no such thing as too much queso. Nor is there any shortage of things to do with the leftovers. Especially if you have no shame and even less regard for cholesterol levels. Hi, I’m Shawnda 🙂
On Cinco Eve, when you’re trying to decide whether you should double or triple your favorite queso recipe between sips of margarita (of course) – go with the little tequila bottle whispering in your ear.
Because if your friends disappoint you and don’t lick the bowl clean, you have options.
There’s Eggs Benedict. And not that you really need anymore options after that because [swoon]…
Then there’s that thing where you dump it over a pan of enchiladas for the ultimate cheesy enchiladas. Or over a chicken cheesesteak for a killer sandwich.
And then there’s scooping the leftovers over a pan of oven-baked fries (because frying anything destined to be covered in cheese is kind of irresponsible). And then top it with a mound of pico de gallo (vegetables!) and avocado (avocado!) and a few squeezes of lime juice (expensive!).

So delicious looking! Yum!
These are so great, and I agree, triple it! I am imagining these with a margarita this weekend, so awesome. Love your writing.
Why am I not eating a big plate of these right now? Salad sucks.
These fries look absolutely amazing! A perfect weekend recipe!
*sigh* My grocery store stopped carrying my go-to queso (I must have been the only one buy it?). Oh well, happy Cinco de Mayo!
Girl, STOP! These are insane and completely worthy of Internet domination.
Too much queso is definitely not a thing. At least not in my world. Bring it on!
