It’s that time of year again! Football Season!! That means draft parties, game day grub and tailgating begins! This Skillet Beef Queso is the perfect starter to cheer your team to a victory! 

Skillet Beef QuesoI don’t know about at your house, but around here things get a little serious when it comes to FOOTBALL Season!! It’s a southern tradition ya’ll. I really think that the calendar must begin in August not January according to the men in my life. 

In all seriousness it’s so much fun! Now don’t go hatin’ me here, I like football as much as the next person. But my Boys LOVE it and I love to cook and plan the party! Give me a table (or Coffee table) to set and some hungry people and you are talking my language. 

Last night was Fantasy Draft Party Night for a bunch of teenage & college age guys! My son says if I will cook they will come! We kept it simple for the draft, gotta keep my “A” game for a “BIG” game – wink wink! Besides parties can be simple, delicious and fun! Beside I didn’t want to take away from all the SMACK Talk going on!

We kept this party simple no decor. Just really good food. But keep an eye out for game day tables coming soon!

Draft Party Menu

  • Stuffed Bacon and Cheddar Burgers on the Grill
  • Chip and Dips – Is it really not a party without DIP. We had a simple ranch mix and sour cream (Ranch Dip) &
  • Skillet Beef Queso was the star of the show or Quarterback of the team 😉
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Skillet (Recipe Coming Soon – So ya’ll come back)

Once you have that all melted and warm. Garnish with some cilantro. You could really be fancy and add on diced tomatoes and green onions too! Remember I had teenagers so I had to keep it simple. I was pushing it with cilantro!
