Well, the big game day is here. Living in Denver and being an avid Bronco fan for over thirty years, my excitement and anticipation is at a high level. As a matter of fact Denver has been Orange Power Bronco-crazed this whole season. One can only imagine how we’ve acted the last two weeks. So I’ll go ahead get it over early in this post…GO BRONCOS!
This is my second participation with the #SundaySupper Movement and I’m really enjoying the folks I’ve met. What a great group. I’ve found many talented and top-shelf bloggers to follow, not to mention some incredible recipes that have filled up my Pinterest boards. I really appreciate being a member.
And if you’re not familiar, the #SundaySupper was started by Isabel over at Family Foodie as a project for “bringing back Sunday supper around the family table.” Who can argue with that??? This Sunday’s theme is “Super Eats for Game Day.” All I can say is, I can’t wait to browse what everyone has posted. Is there anything better that Football Food? And Mexican Meatballs?
A couple of months ago I ran across this recipe for Queso Blanco over at Mary’s Barefeet In The Kitchen blog. What a great recipe, creamy, spicy smooth and cheesy, this was a keeper. I’ve prepared it a couple of times for a simple appetizer with corn chips. It’s easy and delicious!
Stepping outside the bowl, why not let this dip become a part of a bigger picture? I decided to make some spicy seasoned Mexican Meatballs and serve them drizzled with this creamy goodness. Spicy flavored meatballs dripping in cheesy bliss? Yes, please…and yum!
Now let’s get that South of the border recipe:

To serve, place meatballs on a serving platter and drizzle with the Queso Blanco.
