Weekend Recipe: Queso

The sad news: summer is coming to an end. The happy news: we’ve got a lot to look forward to! It’s not only time to pull out those football jerseys that have been tucked away, it’s Labor Day Weekend, Wine Sisters! 

Wine Sisterhood Queso Recipe

We’re sure we’re not alone in needing a day off to relax. That said, we’ve got an almost-effortless queso dip recipe that is perfect to bring along to backyard cookouts and tailgating parties. 

Queso Ingredients

1 18-ounce can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 4-ounce can of diced green chile peppers, drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper to taste


Step one: Open a bottle of wine, pour yourself a glass and sip. (Don’t forget! You can search for any of the Middle Sister Wines using the wine locator here. And remember, all of the wines featured in this post are available in the Middle Sister Online Wine Shop.)
