Beefy Vegan Queso! A Big and Beefy take on the classic Queso!

The more I make Queso, the more I love it! I decided to beef it up and add some Alpha Foods Beefy Crumbles and it turned out totally BEEF-TASTIC!

One of the great things about this Queso is how versatile it is. You can do as I did and dip some Waffle Fries in it, or go ahead and go full tilt boogie and top some Tater Tots with it to create some friggin Totchos! You could also just eat it with a spoon! (I’m not above saying I did as I was tasting it for seasoning.)

In addition to the Beefy Crumbles, I also added some Ro-Tel. You can use any diced tomatoes and chiles you wish (but use Ro-Tel if you can!) And honestly, because it’s so versatile, you can really top it with whatever you want. I added some vegan sour cream, pico de gallo, green onions and guacamole and it was off the proverbial hook!

Be sure to bring this to your next potluck or Superbowl Party, and knock everybody’s socks clean off!
