This Classic Nacho Cheese Dip is a favorite come kickoff (or tipoff) in our house!
I love going to football games. I love going to basketball games. Heck, I’ll even put up with going to baseball games. Hah…I kid. I enjoy a good baseball game, too. After all, baseball games are a great excuse to grab ballpark food! Although we do have a fun minor league baseball team, we don’t have a lot of other options in our immediate vicinity for live sports.
That’s ok, though. Truthfully, I kinda enjoy watching the games on tv more than going in person. The beer is cheaper, the seats are more comfortable, and you can rewind awesome plays to watch them again. Win-win-win-loss. Huh? Who put that loss in there? Oh, yeah, the lack of ballpark food. There’s just something so enticing about delicious ballpark food!
I’ve always enjoyed some good ballpark nachos. You know the ones I’m talking about. The round tortilla chips with the vibrant (almost radioactive) orange nacho cheese. The other day, I decided it might be fun to recreate some ballpark nachos here at home. I looked at several recipes, and I quickly decided that it would no longer be fun to recreate ballpark nachos.
Apparently the secret to ballpark nachos is a stack of sliced American cheese (the kind in the individual plastic wrappers), milk and a bit of butter. Uhhh. Yeah, I’ll pass on that idea. So I decided to fall back to my Classic Nacho Cheese Dip instead.
Everyone needs a go-to recipe for cheese dip, and this one will absolutely not disappoint. It’s not as easy as microwaving slices of American cheese, but it’s still a relatively easy recipe. The hardest part is making sure you don’t eat it all before the game starts!
What is your favorite ballpark/stadium snack? (It’s still ok to say nachos!)
