A while ago I had made a big ol’ batch of queso dip and put it up here on Spirits & Thyme. It was a big hit and everyone seemed to love it, until one day…. I deleted the pictures! ::GASP:: I know I know, I thought I was cleaning up my photo archive on my blog, but little did I know I was also deleting them from my posts! Its been about 8 months since that frightful day and I have finally taken it upon myself to make another ginormous batch of the holy stuff!

Adding only one handful at a time, slowly stir in cheese until melted and smooth!

I also added a hefty dash of taco seasoning because I didn’t add any hot peppers so it gave it a bit of pizazz! Jazz fingers for queso dip, if you will.
