Creamy Queso Fundido

Who’s your team?  The Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos?  We are a house divided.  Ken is rooting for the Broncos for all the technical and statistical reasons, and I’m rooting for the Seahawks because I like their uniforms, they are from a town that has all sorts of good food, they have a really cool stadium right on the water ummmm let me see what else Oh in college I was friends with the roommate of the daughter of Mike Holmgren the Seahawks former coach…..so yeh that’s why I’m hoping the Seahawks win the Super Bowl.

WooHOO GO SEAHAWKS!

Ken likes to throw out trivia questions at me during big sporting events (well really just on a daily basis) to prove how smart he is and how dumb I am when it comes to sports.  OK buster you’d be eating frosted flakes during halftime if not for your beautiful wifey.  So sheetup!

IMG_2057Are you sitting down?  You need to be! This spicy creamy cheesy dip is gonna knock your socks off!  In the words of my 15-year-old daughter after her first bite “ohmergerd this is soo goood”.

I always gravitate to the Fundido if it’s on a menu.  I mean with a name like Fundido who can go wrong!  This just decided, if we ever get another dog we are naming it Fundido!!! Awe now I want another doggy.  Sorry off track.  Recently we went out to a new Mexican restaurant in Grand Rapids for my Seestors birthday, we ordered the fundido-dee-dee-doe-doe.  It was amazing!  It had girth. It was super creamy, and cheesy, spicy and chunky.  I had to figure out how to recreate it at home.

Nailed it!

I made this midday on Monday during our first of three days off from school because of snow.  It was screaming for a Corona with lime to wash it down, plus it would make for a more authentic Super Bowl picture, right?

IMG_2072Except when my eleven year old and her friend find me in the kitchen hawking (as in Seattle) down on the fundido, swigging my brewsky at exactly 11:05 am.  Needless to say it looked a little suspicious, and of course I had to defend myself to the wee one that had never been to our home before………

“MOM! really?”  Cece hollered ;)

“um I’m shooting for a Super Bowl blog post, and I needed it to look authentic and such…um er dumm dumm dee dum.  Emily do you know what a food blogger is?  No?  Well it’s a person who makes fundido in the morning and drinks a beer with it all in the name of a photo op. Yup that’s me.” says Me.

Says Emily ” that’s OK my mom drinks sometimes too!”.

Phew! For the love of fundido.

So here’s is how you fun-DEE-dough.

    I love your honesty about liking the Seahawks, in part, due to their colors – I’m not alone! :-P

    Sounds amazing Sheila.
    I have a similar recipe that uses two types of canned beans, cream cheese and of course cheeeese.
    It is a family favorite for sure, but I think I’ll mix it up and try your Fundito instead.
    Happy cooking and enjoy the game.

      OOooh we like beans around these parts! Is it on your blog? Thanks for stopping by! xoxo Sheila

      • It is actually my husband’s recipe. Not sure how he came up with it.
        Hi Shelila
        1 can chili w beans
        1 can chili no beans
        8 oz cream cheese
        2 c sharp cheddar cheese
        Melt these together and serve with Frito Lay corn chips. Mostly served as an appetizer before a football game.
        Enjoy!

    Will be trying this recipe – just for the name of it – I think my grandkids and I could create a zippy chant for the fundido!! Well – I know less than you do about the two teams who are playing in the super bowl – except, when my husband asked me which team I would be rooting for, I said- which ever team is the one wearing the orange….I happen to like orange. He rolled his eyes ! Seriously???
    Yepper – more snow headed our way, too. It is winter, so we should expect it.
    Stay warm
