Pulled Pork Queso Dip and a $100 Giveaway! GIVEAWAY EXTENDED

Pulled Pork Queso Dip from www.foodiewithfamily.com It’s a Pulled Pork Queso Party, people, and you’re all invited.Seriously… as a mom of five boys, two of whom are teenagers and three of whom eat like one, I am called on to produce vast quantities of food on very short notice. I don’t know if you’ve ever observed it, but teenage boys travel in flocks. No… not flocks… That would indicate birds and their itty-bitty appetites. These guys travel in packs. Wolf packs. As in they wolf everything down. EVERYTHING.So when you have a pack of boys descend on you for a football game, you’d better be prepared, or you might find some bite marks in your furniture and an empty refrigerator. Remember: five boys. FIVE BOYS AND A HUSBAND.

And they have friends!Luckily, I have a few shortcuts in my pantry to keep these guys from chewing up my couches. Enter VELVEETA & RO*TEL, stage left. I always have both of these in my pantry. Why? VELVEETA & RO*TEL are the only two ingredients in the classic game day Famous Queso Dip and I am Queen of the Queso. While there are many variations on the theme, my version brings a little extra party power with a heaping helping of pulled pork! Queso and pulled pork? BIG WIN! I have a little extra step that I take that is completely optional… I blend my RO*TEL Classic before I add it to the VELVEETA cubes in my saucepan and before melting it all together. This ensures a silky smooth Queso as the starting point. Yes, this COULD be the end point. You could put that in a bowl and plunk it down on the buffet table with a bag of chips and have some very happy people… but you all know I’m not good at leaving well enough alone. This is where the pulled pork gets stirred into the pot and heated through.

If you’re wise, you’ll jump back before you put the big bowl of Pulled Pork Queso on the table. If you were really on top of things, you will have kept a little bowl back for yourself before you did that. Now, while they’re crowded around the table, you can take your little bowl of Pulled Pork Queso and take the best seat on the couch. SCORE!

Are you aware that VELVEETA & RO*TEL have a Quesobago? For real. In fact, it’s on a cross-country tour bringing Famous Queso Dip to the sites of some of college football’s hottest rivalries. That’s right! University of Michigan and Michigan State are going to get Queso-d on November 2nd! If you’re wondering whether the Quesobago will make it to your favourite college team’s big game, or you want to learn some more variations on the Famous Queso Dip, visit www.quesoforall.com. A visit to quesoforall.com can even give you a chance to win a party featuring the Quesobago on football’s biggest game day!

Pulled Pork Queso Dip

The classic game day Famous Queso Dip pairing of Ro*Tel and Velveeta gets a little extra party power with a heaping helping of pulled pork.


  • 1 can Ro*Tel Classic Tomatoes
  • 1 (16 ounce) block Velveeta, cut into cubes
  • 3 cups fully cooked pulled pork


Open the can of Ro*Tel and pour it into the blender. Blend on high until perfectly smooth. Pour the tomatoes into a heavy-bottomed saucepan (*See Notes). Add the Velveeta cubes and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the cheese is fully melted. Stir in the pulled pork and continue stirring and heating until the pork is heated all the way through. Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately.
