CHEESE! I don’t think I could live without it. I’ve considered cutting out dairy products, but the thought of life without cheese makes me cringe. This queso dip was the epitome of cheesy deliciousness with just the right amount of spice from the serrano. The dip would be perfect for your Fourth of July party tomorrow!

This past weekend revolved around food–particularly yesterday. On top of making these delicious and unique tostadas, I made spicy queso dip (with my new cast iron skillet!), and jalapeño margaritas.

IMG_6235I’m extremely frugal, so in my eyes, wasting food is criminal. I always try to cook with ingredients already on hand, and this grilled cheese is a result of that. Using leftovers and items I needed to get rid of, I whipped up this cheesy and delectable grilled cheese. The caramelized onions stole the show, but the truffled fried potatoes came in a strong second. Of course, the gooey Gruyere cheese played its part, too!
