Bush’s Beans Recipe Exchange {Recipe: Chili Bean Cheese Queso}


Bush's Chili Bean Cheese Queso from www.dineanddish.neta

I recently realized I do everything a bit backwards on my blog. While everyone has been posting their favorite super bowl recipes, I wait until the day after to share what I brought instead of what I would bring. I must be such a disappointment to those of you who plan ahead and scour the internet for the current trends.

I’m apparently trendless around here… only participating once things seem to be well out the door. This is not on purpose at all… it’s just how my life works. I have no need for a house full of Super Bowl appetizers unless I’m actually going someplace that requires appetizers. Just like you probably won’t see a bunch of Valentine’s recipes around here until after our big Valentine’s dinner. The last thing my thighs need is to be tempted by some of my favorite foods,  simply to provide SEO related content for you.

With that said, here’s something to bookmark (or I guess Pin is what we do now, right?) for NEXT year and your Super Bowl celebration. Bush’s Chili Bean Cheese Queso using Bush’s Kidney or Chili Beans. I made this for a Super Bowl party we went to last night, and case in point… part of it was gone before we even left the house. I have no restraint, whatsoever.

You can find the recipe below the next picture, but before that, I wanted to share details about a recipe exchange and giveaway my friends Aggie and Laura are having in conjunction with Bush’s Beans!

Join Aggie’s Kitchen and Real Mom Kitchen to share a family favorite Winter Comfort Food recipe for the Bush’s Beans Recipe Exchange! Link up your favorite comfort food recipe using Bush’s Beans for a chance to win.

Two (2) winners will be chosen to win: Bush’s Beans coupons for 10 free cans, $100 Visa Gift Card and a Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron French Oven, 5.5 Qt. Round.

I hope you’ll head on over to their blogs and participate. Comfort food is always in style!

    You are so not a disapointment! Ha! I do the same! I tend to share what i make too – not what i am going to make! Although this year I have been jacked up enough to share some valentines day things :) getting there. This looks delish! So warm and comforting!

    LOL, I’m like you…the football dip I made will go up this weekend, I’m rarely on trend with these things. Though I admit to having some dishes I made for last years celebrations that will have to get posted this year.

    As someone who doesn’t bake cookies for the holidays, post appetizers for football games (that we don’t watch) or share adorable Valentine’s Day desserts, I want to say THANK YOU! I am a huge fan of sharing recipes when you want to not when you think they will be the most PINtersting. And frankly, my thighs did not miss 12 days of cookies or 12 different versions of potato skins. xoxoxoxox

    Ha! You go miss trendless. I hate to tell you but you are always right on trend because no matter what you do it looks so temptingly delicious. Sorry to burst your bubble friend. Now when are you making this for me?

    Kristin This IS WHY I LOVE YOU Gerl!! I am so not trendy either. It takes way too much effort, and complaints by my family that I’m cooking things out of order….why are we eating thanksgiving food on the 4th of July Wah wa wa hahah! I say us non trendy food bloggers gotta stick together! xoxoxo ; ) but then again…I am awful thankful for those FB that are trendy where the heck would we be when “the” day came with out them!

    It must be delicious. As a Valentine’s gift for my girlfriend I’ve just made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school here in Vancouver – cooking classes for couples and I think this recipe could be among the first ones we’ll try together. So it fits in perfectly with my romantic plans. :)

    So here’s the deal. We’re getting a couple feet of snow tonight and tomorrow. Obviously, I’m not doing much of anything tomorrow. What I would like is to spend the afternoon watching movies and eating this dip.

  8. says

    Haha! Try as I might to get on the holiday bandwagon before the holiday has passed, I don’t always do so hot. And “hot food trends”? Forgetaboutit. Suuuuper slow on the uptake over here!

    You’re killing me with this dip. Seeeeeriously, I want to faceplant in it.
