I remember when I was a wee teenager, and the Saints were so bad that they were the butt of all our jokes.
“Dad, can I have a car?”
“Sure… when the Saints win the Superbowl! BAHAHAHA!”
I remember when my grandmother, sitting in her 50-yard-line Superdome seats dressed head to toe in black and gold, shouted angrily at the Saints’ coach: “What are you, free-basing Prozac?!?!?” (To this day no one knows what she meant by that, but I’m pretty sure Reggie Bush’s parents, who were sitting directly behind her, got a huge kick out of it.)
For all my life, the Saints were affectionately known to most Louisianians as the “Ain’ts.” But as of last night, our luck has changed. Put on your Sunday Best kids, THE SAINTS ARE GOIN TO THE SUPERBOWL!
My dad cried, Brett Favre limped off the field with his tail between his legs, and the city of New Orleans consumed more whiskey in one night than the whole nation consumed in 2009. I don’t even want to think about what’s gonna go down if they actually win the Superbowl– but that’s a post for another day (fingers crossed.)
So, in honor of last night’s huge win against the Vikings, I’m going to give you all the secret to the easiest, most delicious queso dip you will ever scoop up with your chip:
What you’ll need:
1 lb Velveeta cheese
1 can Ro-tell (diced tomatoes with green peppers)
1 microwaveable bowl
Cut Velveeta block into manageable cubes. Put them in the bowl. Dump in Ro-tell tomatoes, juice and all. Microwave a minute and a half, stir, repeat, until the diced tomatoes are evenly distributed and the cheese is fully melted.
Serve and enjoy.
