After school snack time – the Best Queso with Hillshire Farms

Thursday afternoons are a little crazy around here. The older kids are picked up from school at 3pm. We make it home by 3:30pm, with two extra friends. We leave the house by 4:15pm for choir for my oldest and the oldest friend. I return home and help two more finish homework. I pick up the older two at 6:00pm and drop off the other friend.

Best Queso Ever - Hillshire Farm-1b

I’m not complaining – promise! I enjoy having a house full of friends and laughter. It just means that Thursdays have to be very efficient and easy – especially when it comes to snacks!

When I lived in Texas, this was a staple in every house on the block. The fun thing about moving to Arizona, is that other kiddos think I’m a culinary genius because they’ve never tried this.


  • 1 – box Velveeta Original Loaf
  • 2 – cans Rotel (I like the diced tomatoes with green chiles)
  • 1 – package Jimmy Dean Sausage (get the sage – it makes the entire recipe perfect!)

It is so easy and I am so glad that it is a hit! And the bonus? It helps me sneak a little protein in before their long evening.
