Football at our house is a BIG deal. Every week, Dustin and I sit down and draft our fantasy team, not so much to compete in a contest, but really just to compete against each other. The kids will even get into it picking their favorites! Then, we all sit around during the day watching football, cheering on our teams (and players!), and munching.
Really do Sundays get better than that? (The answer is no. No, they don’t.)
Recently we have been homegating more. Even better, we have this projector that can put the games on the side of the house. It’s SUPER cool. Not only is it like watching the games on the big screen, but even better, for the evening games it means football and bonfires!!
I don’t know about you, but bonfires, football, queso and Coca-Cola? That’s pretty much a night made!
We can just set up the coolers, bring out the food and let the night begin!
But whether we are watching at home or if we are heading out to tailgate, one of our favorite things to make, hands down, is chili con queso. Dustin has been a bit obsessed with his Instant Pot lately, so that’s what he has been whipping it up in. It’s cheesy goodness y’all.
I swear, we make it every single week. The kids love it. We love it. Our tailgating friends love it. And it is super versatile! We of course dip our chips in it. But we’ve also topped it on baked potatoes, added to hot dogs, smothered on our burgers, and loaded it on our french fries. I always say to make a bigger batch so we can use the leftovers in a taco the next day, but every time we make a bigger batch - it seems to just get eaten.
Everything is super easy to make and shopping at Walmart makes it even easier! Have you used their online grocery pick-up before? It’s so simple to use and saves me a TON of time! Walmart is definitely the party central for our homegates and tailgates! While you are picking up the ingredients for this Instant Pot Chili Con Queso, you can also pick up all of your other tailgate needs (and groceries for the week!) all in one trip.
We never have a tailgate without our Instant Pot Chili Con Queso, but also not without Coke® and/or Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar. It pairs with everything! It’s a total winning combination!
